Imaginary Safety

Me (strapping him into his car seat): "Alright buddy, are you comfy?"

Sippy Cup: "Yep.  Thanks Dad."

Me: "Alright, cool, we're ready to go."

Sippy Cup (putting his hand up): "Wait Dad!"

Me: "What is it?"

Sippy Cup: "What about James?  He needs to be safe too!"

Me: "Are you serious?"

Sippy Cup: "Yes!  He needs to be safe!"

Me (reaching in and buckling an imaginary seatbelt): "Ok James, you're good to go."

Sippy Cup (shaking his head and sighing): "Daaaad, don't be silly.  Do it for real!"

Me: "You want me to really buckle a seat belt back here for your invisible friend?"

Sippy Cup (reaching over and buckling the middle seat belt):
"Forget it!  I'll do it myself! There you go James.  I'm sorry.  My Dad is so crazy."
