At lunch today, out of nowhere, Ryder strolls out of his room (yes, you heard me, it was lunchtime, and Ryder was not eating. Shocker.)
Ryder: Mommy, can you return babies?
Mom: what do you mean?
Ryder: Can we return a baby for another baby as cute as a baby whale?
Mom: What baby would we return? When you return something, you need to bring something back to the store before you get the new thing that you want.
Mom: What baby?
Ryder: Well, can we return Hayden for a baby as cute as a baby whale?
Mom: You want a baby whale?
Ryder: NO!... A.... BABY...AS...CUTE...AS...A...BABY...WHALE.
I guess I should tell him what happened at Sea World... not cute.
