This happened while I was in the kitchen making lunch the other day.
C (my 5 year old): Grrrr (hilarious growling), grrrrGraaaaawl!!!!!
Me: What are you doing, Honey?
C: (very dramatically) GGGGGRRRRRrrrrrrr, Mom, oh no…..a porcupine….BEHIND YOU!!!! AAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHH!
Me: What? A porcupine behind me? I didn’t know that porcupines growl like that. Thanks for warning me.
Then, a moment later.
Me: C, Honey, you need to eat your apple slices before you leave the table, okay?
C: Mom, do you know what apples are for?
Me: No, what do you think that they are for? (Thinking that I have absolutely NO idea what he is going to say.)
C: Apples are for cleaning the crumbs out of your teef.
Me: You’re right….they do clean crumbs out of your teeth.
I never know what he is thinking about or what he is going to say.
