Free-association, 3.5yo Ben-style

Did you know there are only 5 degrees of separation between a raccoon and a space ranger? It's true! Last night, as part of his "talk as much as possible in order to stall bedtime" routine, Benjamin said, "Hey Mommy, it's almost nighttime. That's when the raccoons come out! And then ... the stars come out! And theeeehhn ... the planets come out!! And theeeeeehhhn ... the rocket ships come out!!! And theeeeeeehhhhn .... the space rangers come out!!!!" His excitement, smile, and voice pitch grew with each association until he was overcome with excitement and ran and crashed into me with a huge hug. I don't mind the stalling routine nearly as much when he is this darn cute.
