One day it could happen to you

[8-year-old boy working on vocalic R’s – like “fire”, “tire”, etc.]

Boy: “Admire.” What’s that?

Me: That means when you really like somebody.

Boy: Ew.



Is there a kids’ show about kangaroos I don’t know about

4 y/o boy: It’s cold! I’m a cold kangaroo.

[A while later, playing pretend with some Legos. Talking about the good guys and bad guys we’re making up.]

Boy: He’s as mean as a mean kangaroo.

Me: How come everything is about kangaroos?

Boy: I mean, as mean as a mean whale.

Me: Is everything about animals?

Boy: He’s as mean as a mean something.
