Carter's Story Time

So, Carter often likes to tell me "stories" on our way home from daycare every day. He'll tell me what happened at daycare, what his friends did, the colors outside, etc. He's quite the talktative and observant toddler.

Anyways, on the way to daycare yesterday, we spotted our neighbor's horses hanging out in their yard. Carter started telling me about the baby horsey being outside, wearing a "jacket" because it was cold. He then went on to say that the baby horsey wanted his daddy horsey to come back. When I asked him where the daddy horsey went, he said the daddy horsey was sick and went to grandma and grandpa's house. He said the baby horsey missed the daddy horsey a lot. I honestly teared up during that story.. dangit Carter!

Last night, he pointed to the shark on his pajamas and told me another story about this baby shark who missed his daddy shark. I told him that the daddy shark missed the baby shark too and will see the baby shark when he can.

Seriously, I had no idea that children can even understand these things, let alone process these emotions. I am amazed at his ability to be able to process this info and talk about his emotions by re-enacting the situation with toys and other objects. I know we all think this about our kids, but Carter is amazing. However, it does make me sad to know that Carter does know what's going on in his own little way.. I just hope he doesn't remember this sad time in his life.
