I am so incredibly overwhelmed to actually write with substance, so I leave you a few things that have made me laugh lately:
Grown Up Talk
Luna: Mommy, where did you go tonight?
Me: I went to dinner with Crazy H*.
Luna: I want to go to dinner. You go to a restaurant?
Me: Yes, Crazy H and I went to a restaurant. But we talked grown up stuff.
Luna: What’s grown up stuff?
Me: Wawawawawa (like in Charlie Brown).
Luna: That’s no grown up talk.
Me: What is grown up talk?
Luna: (thinks) "I want a cookie, please" That’s grown up talk!
Charles Darwin vs G-d
Soleil: Mom, who was the first person?
Me: Well, the Torah says the first person was Adam.
Soleil: No, the first person ALIVE.
Me: Still Adam.
(followed by a discussion of biblical vs evolutionary creation theories)
Me: so we call that evolution
Soleil: Wait! I know that (all excited!) It’s like the Evolutionary War!
Me: Um, revolutionary war, but close enough (girl you don’t know how close you are!)
Just like a Real Lion Except…
Soleil: I want to see a real lion.
Jay: Don’t you see Christopher at the zoo?
Soleil: yes. But I mean like Mufasa
Jay: Well, Mufasa is drawn..He looks very much like a real lion except….
Soleil: ….except that he…
Jay: has a different mouth and he talks, and real lions don’t talk
Me: Jay, Soleil was talking and you interrupted her. Soleil, you were saying Mufasa looks like a real lion except…
Soleil: they didn’t draw his penis
* Crazy H is NOT her real name
