The Haunted Hospital

I think I may have had a small lapse of parenting judgement. Lorenzo has been begging to go to a haunted house and the haunted hospital in Tooele just opened up. Last weekend Esperanza was having a sleep over and Lorenzo just kept begging. So we decided to take him. He invited his good friend and cousin Zane who is 9 to go with him. My boy thinks he is way older then 3. I probably should have had some reservations when he told me on the way that he wasnt three anymore but almost nine like zane. Anyways those haunted houses are scary. I hadn't been to one since I was in high school and forgot how creepy they are. I do have to say though that I have a very brave son. He made it through and he didn't cry and even wanted to go again after, but I think we better wait a few years before we do that again.

Oh what do you do with a three year old

Since Esperanza just started preschool it has been great fun to spend alone time with Lorenzo.  I am pretty sure he lives in a dream world.  It is so amazing how he views the world, but the other day we had a funny little conversation.
Lorenzo: Mom are we buddies?
Me: Sure we are
Lorenzo: Well, do you like spiderman
Me: Sure
Lorenzo: Well, then we cant be buddies because I like batman now.
Me: Oh, so what if I like dinosaurs and you like batman can we still be buddies?
Lorenzo: Yeah I like dinosaurs too so we can be buddies
Me: Ok what if I like strawberry shortcake?  Can we be buddies?
Lorenzo: Mom! That is a bad word. Never say that to me again. Strawberry shortcake is for girls.
I just had to laugh to see the workings of his mind.  Always full of questions and surprises!
