Kids say the darndest things and my apes are no exception. The particularly funny one in our fam is 5 year-old Sara. The stuff that comes out of her mouth is mind blowing. So here’s a funny/cute “Sara story” for you.
SCENE: Sara in the tub babbling away about things that are “twins” and “id-den-ti-cal.” Conversation begins:
ME: Wow Sara, you are SO smart!
Sara: Oh yes. I am very smart.
ME: How did you get so smart? Are you smart like Mommy (*hint*hint*)? Or smart like Daddy?
(pause) Sara: I am smart like myself.
ME: Good answer! You will be a bright, successful, wonderful grown-up someday.
Sara: Oh yes! When I am 16, that will be tu-moungous for me!
ME: What will happen when you are 16? Will you get a car?
Sara: YES! A dark pink car!
ME: Will you be Queen of the Prom?
Sara: On no. I will be a Rock Star!
Mom tears up. Makes mental note to pray that that confidence stays with her forever. Sara scratches butt and sniffs fingers.
