Funny stuff kids said to me today (at school and at home):
Me: “Little girl, I love your long hair. Did you ever cut it before?
Little girl: “yeah, my mom cuts it with a knife (illustrates with a whiplash effect with her hand)
Me: “What does your Dad do?”
Little Boy: “He farms.”
Me: “And what about your Mom…?”
Little Boy: “She just shops.”
Me: (as I point to a picture of a nose on a face): “What is this?”
Little Boy: “A nose.”
Me: “…and what is it for?”
Little Boy: “For picking.”
Me: “Little Boy, can you name two articles of clothing for me?”
Little Boy: “pants and long johns…”
MaryAnne, my youngest daughter: “Who is that man? (pointing to someone we know in a restaurant)
Me: He is a retired teacher.
MaryAnne: “You mean he is just too tired to scream at the kids anymore?
Sarah, my second youngest daughter: (with a dead serious expression on her face) Our guidance counsellor is 73 years old, you know.
Me: “Sarah, no he’s not.
Sarah: (perplexed, but still adamant about her statement) “He told us he was. Well then, he’s 72.”
Bah dum dum, (crash)!
