Kyle and I picked Amanda up at school last week, and Kyle thought I parked too far away. He pointed to the empty spaces closer to the school, and I told him that I couldn't park there.
"Oh, the ones with the person on the potty is only for Grandmommies?"
When my grandmother came to visit in September, she had her handicapped tag, so we did indeed use those spaces. I have no idea why he would remember that, but it reminded me of something Amanda said when she was about his age.
Someone was talking about being handicapped, or maybe we were with someone who had a walker or wheelchair or something, and Amanda said, "My mom used to be handicapped."
She was referring to the few months that I had a handicapped tag because I was recovering from my ACL surgery. Parking that extra fifty feet closer made a huge difference, being on crutches and having a preschooler to keep up with.
And one more Kyle-related potty comment before I go:
The other day as he was running to the powder room (he still always runs everywhere), he said, "Babies say 'I have to go potty,' but big kids say, 'I have to go to the lavatory,' or 'I have to go to the bathroom.'"
