    The other day, I fixed Sean some bean dip and I handed him a bean dip cracker — or what the rest of the world calls a saltine — to eat with it. As I handed him the cracker, he gave me a big smile and exclaimed, “Oh! Thank you! I used to eat these kind of crackers when I was a baby!”

    Yes, way way back in 2005; the olden days.

      That particular line will be around awhile. I hear it from both of mine when an ‘old’ treat comes up. Like a familair veggietales song suddenly played at a friends visit or a candy that my son hadn’t seen around in a few..months ROTFLOL!!!!!

      Isn’t it just too cute when they say that? Amazing they can remember so many years back, right? My four years olds had quite the babyhood the way they remember similar things.

      I know this is about how a little child perceives time but my first thought was, “What a clever way to get him to eat beans!”

      Yep. My seven-year-old waxes nostalgic about the olden days, when she was a little kid.

      That’s so funny. It’s all relative to those little guys, I guess. One year when we gave our then three year old a Rescue Heroes set for Christmas, he exclaimed, “Oh, I’ve been wanting one of these for YEARS!”

      Shorty (4 years old) did this to me just recently. Referring to something that he thought was funny LAST WEEK, he said, “That made me laugh, when I was little.”

      It seem Sean is going to be as funny as his mommy. He says the cutest stuff.

      The physics of time and how they learn to think in terms of “the past”…

      Old people can remember 60 years ago, but not last year — Sean could get a job in Florida remembering things for seniors. And, besides being smart—he is also adorable!
