From the Mouths of Babes, Vol. 1

*** 

(Overheard from the back of my van.  I couldn’t help laughing when I heard the serious tone in this ten-year old’s voice)

“Maybe its not meatloaf itself you don’t like, but just they way you’ve had it.  Because, really, lots of people make meatloaf different ways.  Some make it with crackers and other breadcrumbs, some use ketchup and others use barbecue sauce…”

***

Will:  If a limb is cut off, does it grow back?

Me:  No, honey, it doesn’t.

Will: WHAT?!?!  What if your foot is cut off?

Me:  Nope.

Will:  WHAT?!?!  What if your leg is cut off?

Me:  Nope.

Will:  WHAT?!?!  What if your arm is cut off?

Me:  Nope.

Will:  WHAT?!?!  What if your hand is cut off?

Me:  Nope.

Will:  WHAT?!?!

You can imagine where this conversation went for the next five minutes.

***

Katie:  What is china?  Like, the stuff you eat off of?

James:  Its made of material that’s only used by fancy people who do things like eat with their pinkies up and who know what fork is used for what food.
