The kids and I recently started watching
Lost on Netflix.
We are three episodes in. It’s a nail biter, for sure.
And, it provides entertainment while my hubby is in Romania this week.
Anyway, I digress …
The other morning my 10 year old came into my room while I was blow drying my hair.
We had this exchange:
Son: Mom, I have been thinking about Lost. I think I’ve figured it out.
Me: Okay, what’s up, Bud?
Son: Well, I think the crashed plane represents hard times in our life.
Me: Yeah, that could be true.
Son: I think the island represents how sometimes we feel alone.
Me: Hmmm… Yeah, I could see that.
Son: And I think the monster thingy represents our fears.
Big hug, proud momma moment…
Son: Mom, can you give me ten bucks to pay for a membership to Animal Jam?
This was an enlightening both/and moment…
My son is BOTH insightful AND he’s a huge deal-worker.
Doh, played again!
