Another conversation courtesy of this cute little four-year old:
The four year old: Mommy why do we have two eyes?Me: Well, it would probably be hard to see with just one eye so God gave us two.
The four year old: Well the monster has only one eye.
Me: Well, you’re right. But that’s because monsters are pretend. So I guess some of them only need one eye.
The four year old: Well no. He just has one eye because that’s the way God made the ugly mean big blue monster.
And that my dear friends is just one example of why some days I feel like I’m going a little crazy!
On Saturday afternoon we were all sitting in the family room watching a movie together. Megan was walking around & she picked up one of my Willow Tree figures – it’s a family of three. Mom & Dad are holding a little baby. She brought it over to me & I noticed some red markings on the faces.
So, I asked …
Me: Evan, why is there red crayon on this?
4 yr old: Well, I colored their faces so they could see their baby. They couldn’t see their baby before.
How can you argue with that?!?
Linking up to Tiny Talk Tuesday.
This conversation comes courtesy of my husband’s family. We spent Thanksgiving evening at his Aunt’s house. I lose track after ‘1st cousins’. Is it 2nd cousins, 3rd cousins, cousins once removed … I don’t have a clue! This story however is about one of those 2nd, 3rd, or once removed cousins!! But for simplicity sake we’ll say Evan was playing a video game with one of his “cousins” (aka “The 6 year old”) as my husband looked on.
6 year old: Evan would you like me to help you get the car off the road so you can race again?
Husband: Thank you for helping Evan, that was very nice of you.
6 year old: You’re welcome. Would you please be sure to tell my Mom and Dad …
My husband was waiting for the rest of the sentence. It didn’t happen. He just wanted my husband to be sure & tell his Mom & Dad that he was being nice!!
Cracked us up!!
Apparently he gets in trouble alot so he makes sure his parents hear anything good that they can!! And I think he’s a future salesman!
So, any funny Thanksgiving Conversations at your family gathering??
I’m celebrating a birthday later this week, so today I had this conversation with “the four year old”:
4 year old: Mommy can I come to your birthday party?
Me: Of course!! I’d love for you to come to my birthday party? Guess what? I am going to be Thirty-ONE. Can you believe it?
Me: Ah thanks Evan. But I’m a little older than Megan or Asa.
4 year old: That’s ok. I love birthday parties!
Well … at least he’s not old enough to tell me I’m old yet!
Scene: My sister, Staci, and I are driving around the mall parking lot looking for a space. Of course we’re doing a little bickering back & forth about which lane to go down, which one to skip, who’s coming out & who’s not, etc. Evan (the 4 year old) and Megan are both in the back seat.
Staci: Oh right there. Right there.
Me: Staci, they are not coming out they’re just backing up.
Staci: Well then get this one. That guy’s coming out.
Me: He’s not coming out, he’s pulling in.
Staci: Ah that one right there. Right there.
4 year old: Mommy you just have to trust Staci on this one. You always trust your friends.
Sigh (and laughter)!
(that little line came courtesy of “Finding Nemo” … I like that one ALOT better than “I hate you Dad” which was also picked up courtesy of “Finding Nemo”)!
4 year old: Mom, now that my birthday is over does that mean it’s Christmas now?
Mom: Well Christmas is still a ways off. We can look at the calendar & I’ll show you.
4 year old: Oh, so we have to be patient for Christmas.
Mom: Yes … very patient for Christmas. Very, very patient for Christmas
We no longer have a three year old in the house, but so far conversations with a four year old are just as good!!
Scene ~ 4 year old waking up the morning of his birthday.
4 year old: Mom, guess what? I’m 4 now.
Mom: That’s right. You’re 4 now. Happy Birthday!
4 year old: Is it time for my Dinosaur Party yet??
Mom: Not yet. Remember, today you turn 4 and then we’ll go to sleep two more times and THEN it’s your Dinosaur Party!
4 year old: Ok, let’s go to sleep now.
