Today, my oldest girl, who is 10, came to me and said, “In our next house, I would like my room to be in the bathroom.”
Yes. IN the Bathroom.
OK, I’ll bite. “Why?”
“Because it is so cozy in there, and when I get cold, I can just jump in the shower.”
I can’t even reply.
Next, my little one trots up happily, takes a look at me and says, “It looks like you’re growing a beard.”
Who are these children and where did they come from?
Some days I truly wonder how they arrive at a statement. What chain of thoughts brought them to the moment when strange things come pouring out their sweet little mouths?
I do remember being a child. I suppose I remember sometimes even saying strange things.
I just don’t know if I have inadvertently passed this verbal anomaly down to my children through genes or example. Or maybe it is just all children.
As you can see… they constantly baffle me.
