Well, I guess I'm not too far gone

Kids' weirdness can still bring a smile to my face.

Eb (five year old girl): "I don't like spiders. At my house there was a daddy long-spider."

Me: "Hee hee! A daddy long-legs? Well, they can't hurt you at all."

Eb: "I know. I know they can't. But he ran away! And hid!"

Me: "Well, then?"

Eb: "Well, now there's a daddy long-spider hiding in my house!"


Et (five year old boy): "My name from now on is Mister Man."

Me: "Um. Okay."



life just good

I like the little vignettes about kids. Sometimes they're a lot more interesting than we are.
