So I'm changing Ridge's diaper, and of course, the much needed wipes have "walked off" to somewhere else in the house.
Me (with a sigh of frustration, talking to myself): Where are the wipes?
Ridge: I don't know mommy. And there's nothin I can do about it right now.
Me(laughing to myself): I know. You stay right there. (risky move, I know!)
When I return with the wipes, he is thankfully still lying there on the floor in the exact same position. I can tell he's been thinking hard about something.
Ridge: you know mommy, there's a bad guy
Ridge: yea, but don't worry mommy, Daddy will save you.
Me: Daddy will save me?
Ridge: Yes, Daddy's the good guy.
Me: You're right. He is a good guy. What about you? will you save me too?
Ridge: There's nothin I can do about it. But daddy can.
Three things I learned from this conversation:
1) He listens to what I say. I've said many times, "I'm so sorry Ridge. There's nothing I can do about it right now. I'm driving."
2)He is obsessed with good guys & bad guys.
3)I always need to check for wipes before starting the process of changing a diaper
