but: the conjunction

i'm putting colby to bed night before last and he wants to hold my hand while he falls asleep.
very sweet, yes, but i had just put a topcoat on my nails and they were still a little tacky.
i didn't say anything, i figured i could just touch up later if i needed to. but he noticed that, fingers spread don't touch anything stiffness of my hand....

colby: "are your nails still wet, mommy?"
me: "yes, love. a little bit. just be careful."
colby: "but not your toenails?"
me: "no. my toenails are dry. i didn't paint them."
colby: "not the bottom but(t)."
me: "what?"
colby: "i said but, but it wasn't the bottom."
me: "i know. you said but the conjunction."
colby: "cunjkin?"
me: "conjunction. if you say but and it's not the bottom, it's a conjunction, and thats ok. like if i say 'i love chocolate milk, but i love you more,' thats a conjunction."
colby: "but if i say the bottom but(t), then i get in trouble."
me: "usually, yes."
colby: "and two things can happen if you get in trouble."
me: "what two things?"
colby: "time out, or you get swallowed by a whale. that's what happened to Jonah. he got swallowed by a whale because he didn't follow directions."

well, that about sums it up. out of the mouths of babes.

i've attached some recent pictures for your viewing pleasure.
