The Tales of John

-John has an imaginary friend named Oso.  I believe Oso is based off of a cartoon character who is some sort of special agent.  Oso is 3, 9 or 28 depending on when you ask John.  Oso is a rather funny character.  I love listening to John talk to Oso.
The other night we were putting John to bed and I asked where Oso was.  "He's downstairs," John said.  I told him I thought Oso should go to bed too and asked if he wanted to sleep in the same bed as John.  John looked at me like I just asked the stupidest question and said "no".  When I asked why he said, "because Oso is 3 years old and he doesn't want to sleep with me."

A couple of days ago I was putting Gus down for a nap and John was in the bedroom, sitting on the bed, looking intently at a pillow that was leaning against the wall.  I told John he needed to go downstairs because Gus was taking a nap and he said, "But Mommy, Oso and I are watching TV."  I told him he needed to continue playing down stairs and John got off the bed.  As he was walking out of the room he said, "What?  Oso, I don't know why they can't hear you."    Too funny.

-I found this part on the floor by the laundry sink.


I called John over and asked him if he knew where it came from. "Um, yes" he said, then he got on his hands and knees and looked under the sink "ummmmm".  Hans was standing right next to me and said there was no way John was going to remember where it came from.  We weren't even sure he was actually the one that put it there.  Just then John says, "Oh, right here"   pointing to the spot it goes.  "It twists right here with the pointy end up."  Sure enough that was where it went.


-I saw that SpongeBob: The Movie was on, so I quickly clicked on it and told John he could watch it.  I went into the kitchen to do dishes and John came into the kitchen and said, "Mom, I don't really speak Spanish."  I thought he was just talking nonsense, but then he said it again.  I went into the my room and found that I had put on the SpongeBob movie in Spanish.  I'm not sure how he knew it was Spanish, but he was right.

He is hysterical! I love the comment to Oso about people not being able to hear him. By the way, if it helps "oso" means "bear" in Spanish.
