I just forgot...
Henry's current favorite book is called, "I Just Forgot." It's a cute little book with short sentences and big pictures that Henry has almost memorized so he can "read" it to me. The book is about a little boy who forgets things (like turning of the water in the bathtub, putting away his toys, etc...).
I think that this explains the entrance of that phrase into our daily lives. Just now, for example...Henry came rushing inside to use the bathroom and then went running back outside. After he shut the door behind him, I realized that I could hear water running. When I looked in the bathroom, I noticed he had forgotten to turn off the water after washing his hands! And of course when I asked him what happened he said, "Oh, Mom. I just forgot." That is just like in this book....he remembered to wash his hands, but forgot to turn off the water!
I'm always impressed by my little three year old. He does forget things (who doesn't?) but he so often remembers the important things.
