My 3yo and I were walking through the cosmetics section in Target the other day.
On a shelf there were bottles of bath soaps and hairsprays for kids, with pictures of popular cartoon characters on them.
Sean: MUM! Look over there! It’s Bob the Builder on a spray bottle! Can you believe that?! BOB THE BUILDER! ON A SPRAY BOTTLE! That’s so cool!
Me: Oh hey! Yeah that’s pretty cool. What do you think the spray is for?
He suddenly stood very still. His eyes opened wide and they darted around nervously. He started to speak in a very deep and very serious voice.
Sean: It’s a spray for killing Bob the Builder. If you see Bob the Builder, you spray it on him and he dies.
Me: Like a cockroach?
Sean: Yeah. Just like a cockroach.
Me: So… um, shall we buy some Bob the Builder spray?
Sean: Better not. I like Bob the Builder.
Me: Ok. Me too.
