Elijah was coloring a storm trooper, chattering away about how you kill storm troopers, what they do, who they are, what color they can or can't be, where they live and a thousand other details. I've learned the fine art of, "oh yeah? Really. Huh," responses while thinking other thoughts. I'm glad I caught this nugget though.
Elijah: I really hate coloring the background.
Me: That's OK. Just color the parts you like.
Elijah: OK. I'm done with the storm trooper. I'm going to cut him out.
Elijah gets the scissors and starts cutting around the storm trooper.
Elijah: Mommy, it feels good to cut him out because I feel like I'm setting him free from his background.
Ahh the places we could go with this.
