Author's Notes: Happy late birthday to janissa11! Sorry I was gone on your special day.

x-x-x-x-x

"Can I have Fruit Loops for dinner?"

"No, Sammy, it's not good for you." Dean makes them peanut butter sandwiches instead.

*

"Mr. Bun's having a ride."

"Not in the toilet, Sammy!" Dean dish-soaps the toy— they can't go to the Laundromat right now.

*

"Are skunks lonely? Do clouds have bedtimes? What color's a sneeze?"

"Maybe… I don't know… Probably nothing."

*

"Read me 'Cat In The Hat?'"

"Okay."

Sam beams, clutching Dean's knee. "When I grow up, I'm gonna marry you, Dean."

"You can't, Sammy."

"Whyyyy?"

Two days of rain, three days of Sammy. When the heck is Dad coming home?

Ah! Hilarious and so sweet! I love Sammy's questions - he's a true philosopher. Now I'm wondering about the emotions of skunks, the schedule of clouds and the colours of sneezes.

And Sammy wanting to marry Dean makes so much sense in even a Gen scenario. Don't all little boys want to marry their mommies? ;)

Don't those just strike you as kid thoughts? Where there are so many rules/laws of the universe waiting to be explained, kids will invent new ones of their own, because how can they know?

This actually starts out earlier, with expecting to marry their siblings (part of the childhood Eden is the notion that family goes on forever). I don't know when kids make distinctions about gender and what's reasonable, but I know it took my son awhile to realize he was going to have to marry an actual girl. Other than his sister (which up until at least age 4 was the other thing he thought was happening). It wasn't until sometime later that he thought he was marrying me. :0

My daughter announced, right around age 2 1/2, that she was going to marry Christopher, but that she'd have to wait for him to grow up (he was a baby at the time). And I remember thinking (not saying, but thinking): Wow, that's generous of you. Not putting any pressure on him, are you? Hurry up-- the wedding's coming!

:0

There was also the phase of them living in our house together after they grew up and kicked my husband and me out to the house across the corner. That evolved into letting us still live there, on the bottom floor, while one child took the second story and they added a third story for the other child. @@

Little kids both amuse and boggle me in so many ways...

Aaaaaw, poor Dean. :-) He's trying so hard :-)

I feel bad for him-- it's so much harder to cope with that if you're a kid yourself.

The sheer ominousness of where "Mr. Bun's having a ride" winds up leading. Aaaahhh!

Hee-hee! And I know exactly what you mean, too. :)

Bweee! 3 new drabbles! Wow. ALL so different, and all such gems of their type.
Welcome back!
Thanks,

Thanks, DC! And you know how I love the variety of different settings/ages/takes on any fandom. :)

I just LOVE your Wee!chesters :)

Thank you, Layne-- and thanks for the rec! That was so sweet of you! :)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! I never would have guessed I'd wind up loving wee!chesters but oh my god I do!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on August 22nd, 2007 07:34 pm (UTC)
Oh, me too! I couldn't understand the attraction of the idea at all, until I read some of them and then next thing I knew I was writing them. :0

Something about the odd little twists on their childhood (the altered/sometimes-absent father, the dark things they know about) make them really intriguing.

And then there's the horrifying cuteness of the weird. ;)

Awwww. So cute, believable little kid adorable.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on August 22nd, 2007 07:54 pm (UTC)
:D Thank you, Dot! Having your own kids really opens your eyes to the "weird" that is so much of their everyday life-- hilarious, confounding, and just bizarre.
ErinRua: heavyerinrua on August 22nd, 2007 04:35 am (UTC)
Okay, this totally makes up for making me bleed with "Hollow Promises* :-D This was absolutely awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I just wanna pinch their cute little WeeChester cheeks! .... Though Dean would probably kick me in the shins, LOL!

Love these, simply charming and oh-so-kid-like. :-)
CHeers ~

Probably a good thing I posted them both on the same day, isn't it?

Though Dean would probably kick me in the shins, LOL!
Darn him, I think he would! Poor boy needed a little more childhood than he got-- and that cantankerous old-man part of him had to have set in pretty early. :)

Sam beams, clutching Dean's knee. "When I grow up, I'm gonna marry you, Dean."

"You can't, Sammy."


Everything, right there. Thank you so much for this!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on August 22nd, 2007 07:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you, Rose! Oh, the torture sometimes of explaining the rules of the world to little kids-- it goes on and on, and it takes awhile before patterns start to form for them.

Still working on the "do not use the dish sponge to wipe the floor" rule for my kids AND the nieces. :0

Oh god it was sooooooooooo cute !!!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on August 22nd, 2007 07:58 pm (UTC)
:D The cute, it almost burrrns! But I just can't resist it. :)
Jas Masson: Sam hugjasmasson on August 22nd, 2007 06:31 pm (UTC)
OMG so cute!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on August 22nd, 2007 08:00 pm (UTC)
:D Thank you, Jas!

It's everything like parenting, really-- the cuteness is wonderful, even as the rest of it is sometimes wearing you down. :0

Oh, thank you! Inquisitive children are a lot of fun, but they can definitely make you tired. :0

oh man, poor dean. parenting is hard work, isn't it. very, very cute, tho.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on August 22nd, 2007 08:03 pm (UTC)
Parenting is hard work, isn't it.
It really is, and poor Dean's still a kid himself.

The "Mr. Bun having a ride in the toilet" thing is exactly the kind of horror Dean would never even see coming. :0
muddledmusings on August 22nd, 2007 07:14 pm (UTC)
OMG! That was ridiculously cute! Poor Dean having to be the parent. Adored this. Thanks so much for making me smile.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on August 22nd, 2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
You're very welcome! What a horrifying (for Dean) picture of Sammy's childhood-- lots of cuteness, but Oh.My.God. :D
