What goes through a boy’s mind?

By Tuesday, February 11, 2014 33 , , , , Permalink 0

J. is just like his dad, when he spaces out he zones out, he means is. His eyes won’t move, out of focus. He is just lost, somewhere, in space. And then his eyes refocus and I get him back. Huge smiles to follow.

Reach up high! I have always wondered where he goes when he spaces out. What would make a 4 year old space out like that? What kind of thoughts steal him away to another land?

Has this happened to you? Have you ever seen your child space out out of the blue?

Silly, silly boy. Bitting the blind cord...Something else that really intrigues me of this one boy here, Mister J., is his imagination. He is so creative, his mind always working.

Ask him to tell you a story. His voice will be low and gloomy, he will start his story with a monster by a lake. Somehow a ghost will come into the plot. And this will be scary, very scawy. Soon a troop of zombies will emerge from the Zombie Patch (aka cemetery). And at the end the hero of the story (usually his brother or himself) will save us all.

Trying not to laugh! Being attentive...while bitting the blind cord, of course! Yesterday he climbed up on the window sill and started telling me stories. Being all silly. And calm.

And once more I asked my self: what is going through his mind right now? What is he thinking? What fills his mind when there is nothing else to do? What does he dream about?

He has shared his dreams with me before. They are usually about dark blue monster trucks (his two favorite things in the world). But this time, he told me about monsters that needed to find another world to live because they were destroying ours. He told me how he wanted to help the monsters find a new home where they, themselves, could be happy and safe.

Putting his winking skills to the test! And some feet too I just love my boy to pieces (or like he says, in pieces). He is fun, smart, creative. Silly and such a goof ball. He is the biggest lover with tons of hugs and kisses to share.

Every day he surprises me with something new. But I still wonder…

…what goes through a boy’s mind?

    LOL – I love this post because I have a little boy and cannot predict what will go through his mind. I think that 90% of his thoughts are about Legos though. ;)

    I don’t think I’d really want to know what’s going through my daughter’s head…she’s a teenager so it’s probably just mean things about me. LOL!

    I often wonder the same things about my kids. When they’re toddlers it is kind of fun because you can see them start to figure out what stuff by what they’re doing. Almost like watching their mind work. But as they get older, we lose that. My daughter is 8 and I wonder all the time what is she is thinking.

    My boys were usually more vocal and would always tell me what is going through their mind. But my daughter, she is more like your boy. She gets these far away looks or mischievous looks. And I seriously wonder what is going through her mind.

    I have two girls and I couldn’t imagine trying to figure out what goes through a boy’s mind. I can’t figure out what goes through my husband’s!

    Your little boy is so cute. I love when my kids tell me their dreams or if I happen to overhear them playing and making up stories.

      I love eavesdropping on my boys playing. They come up with the most imaginative, and even complex, scenarios ever!

    Oh I know, their imagination is amazing, isn’t it? I think my son was 8 when he told me what HE saw when he looked at carousel horses. Quite a different picture than mine,

    He is so adorable! I think it’s best that I not know what does through the mind of little ones :-)

    That’s a boy! They’re often in their own little world. Mine would day dream about choo-choo’s and how he could tease the dog. lol

    He is adorable. I do wonder what goes through my boy’s minds as well. But my boys don’t have the vocabulary to explain.
