As I’ve mentioned previously, Miles loves mysteries. After he had a rough morning getting out of the house, I tried to cheer him up by tapping into this interest on the ride to daycare.
“Look!” Miles exclaimed as he does almost every morning. “It’s the football stadium!”
“You found it!” I said. “You solved the Mystery of Where the Football Stadium Go!”
Miles immediately got agitated. “No…no, Daddy,” he stammered. “It not a MYSTERY! We already drive past it!”
“Oh!” I exclaimed. “You mean it isn’t a mystery because we go past it every day?”
“Yeah!!!” Miles said in a tone that unmistakably underscored his response with “you idiot!”
