Tyler’s Funny Thought

Leaving WalMart with my four boys, and the alarm goes off and the employee checks my bags and receipt.  Nothing.  We’re good.  We are loading ourselves into the minivan and Tyler suddenly stops as a realization hits him.  He says, “Mommy, I think I know why the alarm went off!  I put the peaches and the nectarines in the same bag.”

Simplistic, Intelligent Logic of a 4 year old

Simplistic, Intelligent Logic of a 4 year old

Like many conversations with my sons, this documentation is not a political or religious commentary on anything.  It is simply the attempt to record snippets of funny, insightful, surprising dialogue between parents and children.  I realize this conversation could have been more complicated if adults were talking, but they weren’t.  This conversation was the result of the simplistic, intelligent logic of a 4 year old.

After dinner and a bath and helping Aiden get dressed…..

Aiden: “When do boys turn into girls?”
What? Where did that come from?

Mommy: “Boys don’t turn into girls.  If you were born a boy, then you’re a boy.  Do you want to be a girl?”
Heck, maybe he does, I don’t know!

Aiden: “No, I’m a boy. Well, how did God make us?”

Mommy: “God made you in my tummy.”
Not quite ready for the sex talk with my four year old.

Aiden: “Well, how could She do that?”
Mommy, speechless and trying not to laugh. 🙂
