Mail time!!!

I was in the kitchen fixing dinner when heard Max screaming. Aaron came running down the hall with Max following close behind.

Screaming.

Now this in itself really isn't that unusual. Aaron enjoys teasing Max, and Max enjoys screaming when Aaron teases him.
Usually in this situation, Max will come running to Mommy for a hug, but not this time. Aaron ran past me, and when Max got to me, I scooped him up to give him a hug and make him feel better but Max wiggled free and continued to chase Aaron back down the hall.

Screaming.

Then Brielle came into the room "I can tell you what happened" she said "Max wanted to play mail box. He sang the "Mail time" song to Aaron, but before he finished Aaron just left the room. Max just wanted him to take the mail out of his head."

Max pretends to be "Mailbox" from Blue's clues. He bends his head over and then we pretend to take the mail out of his head.

So, when Aaron came running back through the kitchen, with Max in close pursuit, DH grabbed Aaron and held him. Max stood in front of Aaron and bent his head while I struggled to get Aaron's hands and make him touch Max's head.
"There" I said "Aaron has his mail."

Max stopped crying for a moment until Aaron threw his arms in the air and ran back down the hall saying "No, I didn't get my mail, I just threw it on the ground."
Max "picks up" Aaron's imaginary mail and runs after him screaming "GET YOUR MAIL! GET YOUR MAIL! GET YOUR MAIL!................"

My kids are so weird.

Oh my heck...I am laughing so hard because I can totally see this happening at my house!!

Thank God this sort of thing does not only happen in my house!

That is hilarious! I always love how imaginary things can make kids FREAK out. My older son played the "got your nose" game with our youngest. Believing that his nose was really missing (although it was clearly on his face) the screaming and thrashing started. Oh boy!

Mail is very serious business. Max is just demonstrating that he is brilliant by grasping this concept early. Mail is like the hard copy version of comments. I.E. blogger heroin.

I must agree on the weird part. Your kids have more fights over totally imaginary stuff. Poor Max, pop Aaron on the head for me, tell him to stop making Max cry. Little booger.

Glad they aren't the only ones.

Blues Clues. Owning the minds of young, impressionable children, one at a time.

I did child care for 25 years and saw this scenario or one like it play out hundreds of times. I think it's great that they have such a vivid imagination. I believe that indicates extreme intelligence!

a little weird, maybe. but, they have wonderful imaginations!

I'm with Aaron. I do NOT want to get my mail, either.
