Oliver enjoys watching anything "automatic" at work. He likes the buttons available for people in wheel chairs to open doors at certain businesses. He loves automatic sinks and paper towel dispensers. If anything works on its own, Oliver announces that it's automatic!
A few days ago, Oliver was on the potty, and he started to pee. When the flow stopped, he looked surprised and pointed at the bowl and said, "Oh! It's automatic!"
Then, today, at my brother's house, Oliver had to, well, poop. He sat on the toilet and went. After I heard a little plunk, he pointed down in the bowl and said, "Oh! It's an airplane!" I started laughing and he said in his sing-song voice, "No! That's not an airplane!"
Kids say the darnedest things.
