Exuberance after setting up an elaborate play scape:
Emma (8 years old): Ready, set, play!
Eight-year-old Emma talking to six-year-old Johnny
Emma: I’m going to check the mail and then we need to work out a plan to save the universe.
Johnny: Why do we need to save the universe?
Emma: Because the sun is getting smaller and smaller and in like 4 billion years there won’t be any sun anymore.
Johnny: Is the sun good, though? Because it makes you get sunburn.
From last spring – it really has been that long since I posted one of these! It’s all about perspective…
Emma: What is Daylight Savings Time?
Mike (dad): It means we get an hour less of sleep.
Emma: Can we have fruit gummies for our after school snack?
Me: Yes, just today.
…after getting and eating the gummies…
Emma: And can we please have a healthier snack as well?
Emma: Someone should invent a shoe that comes with a drink dispenser, a food dispenser, a first aid kit, a clothes dispenser…
Emma: We need to pack gummy bears.
Me: What are you packing for?
Emma: Moving into our mansion.
While volunteering in five-year-old Lily’s kindergarten class this morning and a child’s paper went missing. We eventually found it in another child’s stack of papers.
Me: Well, that solves that mystery.
Five-year-old: “Well, if it was a REAL mystery, I would solve it. I’m a spy!
More kindergarten quotes. So far I haven’t had the chance to work with Lily’s group, but her classmates are a lot of fun!
Five-year-old girl: I’m going to be a black cat for Halloween.
Five-year-old boy: I’m not going to be a cat, because I’m too boyous to be a cat.
Five-year-old girl: No, you’re not too boyish. Besides, I don’t even like princesses!
What do your kids say that make you smile?
