I just had the weirdest little conversation with Otto. He had just finished breakfast, was watching "Dinosaur Train" (of poop-episode fame), and was perfectly happy, when out of the blue, he looked over at me and asked, "Mommy, are you worried?"
I thought I heard him wrong, since it was a strange thing to say. I said, "Excuse me? What did you say?"
"Mommy are you worried?" He turned to face me and was crawling closer.
"No, honey, I'm not worried. Are you?"
"Yes" He lisps a little when he says the word and nods.
"What are you worried about, Otti?" Trying to think what a 2 1/2 year-old had to be worried about.
"Monsters." Now where the heck did that come from? He was in my lap with a worried little expression on his face now. "Monsters in my house."
I hugged him and said, "You don't have to be worried about monsters in the house, sweetie. Jollypaws eats them."
"Jollypaws eats them?"
"Yup, Jollypaws eats up all the monsters in the house!"
Otto gave me a big grin and hug and said, "OK!" Then climbed off my lap and went about his business as if we had never talked.

Kids are really weird.
