We had yet to purchase a mattress to complete Gilbert's new full sized, big boy bed. Today he was asking Kristen about the bed and wanted to put it together. She explained we didn't have a mattress.
He countered saying we did. Little Man said we have a 'brown mattress' to use. Kristen didn't understand what he was saying. Finally, Gilbert said, "We have the brown air mattress we can use." He was referring to the air mattress that we use for him on road trips (it is a twin size, fyi). Seriously.
The air mattress is kept in the basement storage of the condo building. It is not as if he saw it and then thought about it. He was problem solving on his own! What a smart little man!
