This weekend I took the time to actually "read" the free Parents magazine that arrives each month. As I got to the end of the magazine, I commented to Caroline that I love reading the last section of the magazine where kids are quoted saying all kinds of silly things. Caroline asked me to read the comments out loud, and so I did. We both chuckled at the funny things 2-6 year olds have to say.
Then Caroline asked if she had ever said anything funny enough to send in. And so I thought for a moment and two comments quickly came to mind -
Caroline, age 2
Checking in on Caroline while she was down for her afternoon nap, I noticed that she was not asleep yet. I asked her, "Why aren't you asleep?" She quickly replied, "Because my eyes are open, Mommy!" Duh!
Caroline, age 4
Driving through downtown Atlanta, I pointed out the state capitol to my 5 year old daughter. Her response back, "If that's the "capital" then where's the lower case?" We both laughed.
Who knows, you may see one of these in print one day. Perhaps I'll actually submit them.
