Yeah, we have them all and I watched it... I could not get a clue at all. I have a three year old also, so I thought I may gain some insight because I spend some time interpreting... but, alas, no.
Perhaps it's code for something.

A kid in my kindergarten class today was trying to draw a lady stick figure. He made it pretty tall and disfigured then turned to me and said "She's tall for a lady, that's because she's really a man!"

My 14 yr old is big-time grounded (don't ask), but there was an all-girl party/sleepover coming up last weekend, and we were talking in the kitchen about the conditions under which she could go. I told her facetiously that despite the fact that she is grounded, it would be nice to be rid of her for a night so I could have some peace and quiet.

Two minutes later, my 11 yr old son is on the phone talking to his friend's dad asking if he can come over to their house to play. He says, "can I come over? My mom wants to get rid of me!" I was sooo embarrassed!

NAAPID in school tomorrow. Each class is studying a "lesser-known" African American person in history for a presentation to the rest of the school. We asked our kindergartner who his class was studying, to which the reply was "all of them"!

I asked Thor to pass me a beer from the fridge (well that's why we have them isn't it?). He brought me an apple.

Could be....

Today beest was helping Thor with his science fair project -Metal or Not Metal. It involves testing things with a metal detector. (Well he is still in Kindergarten). So he was preparing a list of things to test and predicting the outcomes. After a few testing sessions, he's getting an idea of what is metal and what isn't, so all of things he was choosing to test were things he thought would be metal (so exciting to hear the "beep"). Beest was making a few non-metal suggestions. They had just shovelled the snow, so one suggestion was sidewalk. Thor did not want to test the sidewalk. Why not? Because some of it is metal and some isn't. Expecting some keen observation about water shut-off access points and the like beest asked "Which parts do you think are metal?" "The robot bits"

....

....


Sidewalks


.....


Cyborgs




He scares me. He's the only one of us who could be the president of the United States. Let's hope he decides he want to be a lumberjack or something.....

Very odd. All the others he doesn't mind me being around, and the one where Fergus has to go to the smelter, gets him scared and he insists that I stand by.

It's my own personal WTF?
At Labrat's suggestion I waited for an opportune time and asked him. He said it was because they were having a party. (Fair enough, he has a reason.) "The party isn't for you," he continued. "The party is just for me."

So the movie and the party are just for him.
