Did He Just Say...?

Eli decided (after a little prompting from Jeff) that he needed to write a letter to Santa so Santa will know what to get him for Christmas this year.

Today Eli sat down to try to draw some of the items on his list. However, he's never been much of a draw-er, so I was anxious to see his attempts to pull Rescue Bot action figure depictions out of thin air.

He sat with the marker and paper and immediately got frustrated. "Mom! I don't know how to do Christmas stuff."
"You can do it." I encouraged.
"Can you just ask Teri how I should draw Christmas stuff?" He proposed.
"What? Who is Teri?"
"She's the one who knows all the stuff about everything. Especially Christmas stuff." He matter-of-factly responded.
"But who is she?" I asked again.
"She's in your phone." He said.
"She's in my phone?"
"Yeah. She's the one you talk to when you need to know something."

And then it hit me. "Ooooooohhhh! Do you mean SIRI?!?"
"Yeah. Siri. She'll know how to draw Christmas things. Will you ask her for me?"

I did not ask Siri. But I did laugh uncontrollably for approximately 5 minutes. The unexpected surprises of raising children in the age of technology.

This is one of those moments you realize that kids today grow up in a completely different world than you did.

Great post!

Next time I need help with something, I'm going to call Teri.

I thought he meant Teri McCune. That's who my girls tell me to call for help fixing or making things. "Mrs. McCune knows how to fix everything."
