As we were shuffling out of the caucus last week, stepping trepidaciously over the ice and shivering in the 10 degree weather, Declan was happily yapping away. For a while now, he has been insisting he can see through things.
Declan: Dada, isn’t it cool how I can see through things?
Bryan: Can you see through this crowded parking lot to find our car?
Declan: Sure! [squinting eyes and looking] It’s over there [waving in the general direction of all the cars] I am so good at seeing through things! I can even see through the whole world. All the way to China! [looking down at the snowy ground and concentrating]
Lady Walking Next To Us: I bet you see a bunch of snow and ice there too!
Declan: [surprised by her comment, then long pause, then sly smile] I told you I could see through things!!!
