Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

My 3 year old granddaughter visited a fire station today. This is an account of the conversation with her Mom on the way home:

I asked her what she should do if her clothes are on fire, and she said “put on different clothes and put the other ones in the hamper!” When I asked her if she’d like to be a firefighter one day, she said “no thank you, I’m going to be Sleeping Beauty because I already have that dress.”

Now, you must admit there’s a certain practicality in her thinking.

  1. My then almost 4 year old niece and I walked her 6 year old brother to the bus stop. On the way back, I asked
    “Are you excited that some day you will go to school?”
    “Yes.”
    “Will you learn to read?”
    “No.”
    “What will you do in school?”
    Thinking … “Play. And eat lunch. And take naps!”

    I thought that was a practical answer. I also thought she had observed high school students in action.
