It may be a phase of cognitive child development, not sure, but just in the past week, Will has begun to tell stories. They are often brief and usually silly but stories none the less.
He usually begins by announcing, “I want to tell a story.’ And a recent one was “I want to tell a story. There was a man who sat on a rocking chair, on top of an orca whale.” Another was “there was a man who came into the house and cut his finger off.”
We haven’t tried to decipher or search for buried, deeper meanings since he is still three years old.
Speaking of Orca whales, Will’s favorite color is black and white, the colors of Orca whales.
