Cameron Can Fix It

well, well, well.

Cameron wants to be a handy man. maybe. sometimes. Like Handy Manny or Bob the Builder.

I made Cameron wear a beanie today, because it was so cold. He did not like that at all. He isn't really a big hat fan, unless its a baseball hat and he's wearing the appropriate jersey to match. He doesn't like wearing jackets either.

I haven't had the pilot light in my heater turned on. I have a plugged in heater in my bedroom that I turn on at night.

I told Cameron he had to wear his jacket inside because it was cold. He didn't like that idea, so he told me he would fix the heater for me.

This was our conversation:

Me: Cameron, it's cold and you cannot take your jacket off.
Cameron: Why, mama?
Me: Because the heater is not turned on.
Cameron: Why, mama?
Me: Because, um, it's broken.
Cameron: I will fix it for you.
Me: Oh, really?
Cameron: Yeah, mama. I'm so good.
Me: Ok, how are you going to do that?
Cameron: With tools mama. I have them.
Me: Wow.
Cameron: Yeah, I have my hammer. And, um, my wrench and screwdriver. I will hit it really hard. Like this. (he takes his hand and pounds it on the wall like he is knocking)
Me: If you hit it hard enough it will fix the heater?
Cameron: Yes. I told you so.

This is toddler logic! The conversation cracked me up though. Gosh, I love him.
