Because I am.

24 Aug

Preschooler, speaking to my blue-haired boy puppet Zeke:  “Why are you wearing pants?” 

Me/Zeke [thinking quickly for a good answer… “Because otherwise I’d be in my underwear?” No, that won’t fly.  “Because I like pants?” Meh.  Oh!  Answer with a question for them. That usually works.]:  “Why are you wearing shorts?”

Preschooler: “Because I am.”

Can’t argue with that logic! Later…

Same Preschooler, to Zeke: “Why do you have eyes?”

Zeke: “Why do you have eyes?”

Preschooler: “Because I do.”

Good answers.

    Cinn, Zeke belonged to my old library and they still have him. I checked Folkmanis’s website and it seems he’s been discontinued. Bummer! I hope Zeke has a successful trip to the doll hospital!

    Can you plse advise if you still have your blue haired puppet Zeke? I am from Australia and am desperately trying to track one down. My now 9 year old daughter has been loving hers for almostv8 years and he is a little worse for wear and whilst he will visit the doll hospital I would love to find another one! Cinn Watson
