"On the grass"

Joshua did the funniest thing the other day. I couldn't help laughing.

The parking lot for our apartment building is surrounded by lawn. When we park, the front of our car is normally against the lawn that leads to our building. I normally get Joshua out of the car first and, to keep him from running in front of a car, I tell him to stay on the grass while I get Abigail.

Yesterday, after taking Abigail out of the car, I noticed Joshua was standing in the middle of the parking space next to our car instead of on the lawn. I asked him why he wasn't on the grass and he looked up at me and smiled. I then noticed he was looking back at his feet as he said, "On the grass." He stepped aside and pointed to a little patch of grass that was growing through a crack in the pavement. He stepped back on the little grass spot and smiled.

I started laughing! It was so surprising that he would think this way. I am now learning to be more specific in my instructions.
