He is always talking about his wings and his jewels and likes to draw pictures of them on pretend AWANA vests. A few nights back, we had a conversation where I literally had no idea WHAT the boy was talking about. He kept asking about "the other wings". I kept telling him that he only got one set of wings. There were no "other wings".
And he continued talking about the other wings, until I was completely frustrated, and gave up on the conversation.
A couple of minutes later, he drew me these alleged "other wings".
Finn explained, "You draw a rectangle and then a thing on top. There are tan wings and gray wings and they have lots of jewels".
And the light bulb finally went off in my head. I now understood "the other wings" he was referring too.
I said, "Oh, Finn, you mean the bronze and silver CROWNS that the older sparkies have." ( I guess they changed things and now have wings instead of crowns, but the older kids still have crowns).
I couldn't believe it. All this time Finn had been scoping out the other kid's vests. I was much too oblivious at age 5 to notice such things.
