Today Partner-in-Crime and I met Magical at his house to walk him over to the library for our school's summer library hours. First, of course, we had to explain to him that we weren't tricking him. School was still closed- we weren't trying to force him to come. Once he learned that yes, school was still closed, he was thrilled to walk to school with us to go to the library.
Getting an hour with Magical was fabulous. He got to listen to the librarian read Pete the Cat over 100 times (she was taking requests) and we got to hear all of his stories about his stroller, robot, and what he's been up to.
On the walk over he very seriously explained how vacuuming works in his house. He vacuums with his stroller and his mom uses Hoover, the vacuum.
"Hoover?" we asked
"Yeah, that's my mom's vacuum's name! Hoover. Hoover's too heavy for me, but not for my mom."
