Takes place outside in our front yard
Joey: "Mom I need some tape!"
Me: "Why Joe Man?"
Joey: "Because Mom, I just need it!"
A few minuets later.... in the house
Me: "Joey where are you bud?"
Me: "Joey? Joey?? JOEY!"
Joey comes walking in the back sliding glass door with the tape and much dirt stuck to it
Me: "Joe, why did you need tape?"
Said as he walked by, very sardonically, as if I should of known...
Joey: "Because Mom, I had to tape two pieces of wood together."
Me: "Why did you have to tape them together, I don't understand..."
Joey: "Mom... I had to make a cross!
Me: "For what?"
Pause... sigh... a bit teary...
Joey: "Because I accidentally squished a bug and I buried it..."
Me: "You did son? Oh that's so sweet! Come here (hug)... Can you show me
where you buried the bug?"
Happy that I asked to see this grave site
Joey: "Sure, you wanna see it? Come here!"
Kneeling down beside his grave, tears streamed down Joeys face
Me: "What's wrong Buddy?"
Joey: "I'm just sad!"
Joey: "Because I killed him! I didn't mean too... He was there, and now he's not and its all my fault!"
Me: "Oh Joe, your so sweet! I am sure you didn't mean to... curiosity just got the best of you, its o.k. sweetie!"
We had a brief moment of silence and after the mention of sharing some M&M's we were up and all was well in Joey's world!
