Something brought this subject to my mind recently, so I just thought I'd share a few of the amusing things the kids said when they were little. The funniest conversations with children always make you feel like you're in some kind of parallel universe -- it's a glimpse into a totally different way of seeing the world!
****I was preparing a snack for Allison (she was about 3) and said to her, "You'll like these grapes because they don't have any seeds."
Her response: "Do they have any nuts or raisins?"
Jonathan was an infant, so Allison must have been 4: Richard was carrying Jonathan around while I was getting supper ready, and he went over and pretended to place Jonathan on Allison's plate. Allison said, "I don't eat my brother -- or anything else that's fat."
"OK, but what did you have to eat?"
"I know it's black, but what is it?"
I was walking Allison to school one cold winter day when she was 5 or 6, and I commented that we could see our breath. She said, "It's so cold the words come out of my mouth twice!" (i.e. first the words then the vapour)
