What's Your Favorite Color?

My little man doesn't meet a stranger. Evan will walk up to anyone and start a conversation with them. Sometimes it is a little embarrassing because I never know what is going to fly out of his mouth. Then again, sometimes its kinda cute.

Lately he's been stuck on a "what's your favorite color?" phase. This past weekend we were at Target and a lady in a wheelchair rolled by and commented on how cute the kids were. Evan immediately starts up a conversation with her and I sucked in my breath(not wanting him to offend her in any way about the wheelchair). He asked her how the wheelchair was going(it was motorized) and she answered him sweetly. He quickly went on to "What's You Favorite Color?"

She answered - "black". They then went on to talk about all of the black things in the store around them and how his favorite color is green. As always, I had to make him tell her goodbye so that the poor lady could escape my curious son.

Do your kids do this? What is your favorite color?

Awww, that is just too cute! My son Jeremy is almost 7 and when he was Evan's age he was very talkative to people..sometimes too much! Aubrey who just turned 3 is the total opposite, she is terrified of strangers and clings to my side when we our in stores or out and about. I hope she grows out of this soon. :) Kids are just so funny sometimes!

Mica's exactly like that. He went through a favorite color stage too.

Orange was his favorite color. He made such a big deal out of it, and didn't want anyone else to like the color that he liked. I went and bought orange t-shirts for him, and now he's informed me that he doesn't like orange anymore. He likes blue.

Mica's always been pretty verbal. He called someone fat, and laughed at another girl that he thought had a monkey face {she had a cleft pallet}. I wanted to hide in both situations. The little girl thankfully didn't hear him. We've had major talks about accepting people that are different!

I always bring up my mom, which had Polio, and had to get her ankle fused last year. Then I bring up my sister, and how her baby is going to be sick. I'm trying to get him to understand that different things happen to different people {even in our family}. I just don't think until recently he could understand. He's done a lot of growing up in the past few months.

I have seen that sympathetic side to him as well. I think he's getting there. He stayed and talked with a kid that cried every time he was dropped off at preschool. He also is hesitant to wear certain things to preschool because he's afraid of scaring the little girls in his class {skull and monster t-shirts}. http://theapels.blogspot.com/2011/04/bow-tie.html

Yep Mica's a funny kid!

My kids don't normally do this, but Hannah might if she is feeling especially talkative. :)

My daughter just turned two, so she can't really strike up conversations but she makes friends EVERYWHERE! She has a very magnetic personality and even without words strangers wave and say hi and talk to her, and most of the time she tries to talk back with her limited words and she always says Bye with a big smile. I am worried on how she will be when she is older. I am totally OK with a healthy fear of strangers.

My youngest is so shy and will not talk to anyone, but everyone she does know, she knows exactly what color they love because she always asks them. She loves purple and green.

My son was the same way. He used to, well he still does, talk to everyone!

My favorite colors are blue and green.

My son does the same thing, I thought it was out of the norm until I observed some of the other kids in the swim class, they readily chat up all of the parents (whether they know them or not) and have a tendency to give what I like to call "my life story...in under a minute!"

My daughter (4) is suprisingly the polar opposite...while very verbal around people she knows, she will not conversate with adults she does not know (she will chat with kids that she doesnt' know though and makes friends easily)

My son's new thing is to say hi to other kids at Wal-Mart...which is no big deal. However, if they don't answer him, he looks at the parents and says, "Does your kid talk?!" Totally embarassing! That's when one hand pushes the buggy and the other hand goes over his mouth.

That's cute that he asked about the wheelchair and she answered! My 4 year old son will also talk to anyone about anything. I'm also always afraid of what he'll say. So far, he's been o.k., but I think some people think he talks too much.

My daughter is only 2, and not very talkative yet, so all she'll say to people is "Hi" and only if I tell her to. Don't you just love how kids can take different abilities in stride? That's so refreshing.
