Kids Say the Darnedest Things!

HT wanted purple juice (kool-aid) this morning for breakfast.  And I told him it was all gone.  Every conversation lately has at least one "why" in it.  The rest of the conversation went something like this:


"Because you drank it all.  It's all gone.

"We ranned out?"

"Yes, we ran out."

"We ranned out of water, and milk, and poop, and sometimes food,"
Then in a very matter of fact tone of voice . . .
"we have to buy some more."

"Hmm, really?  . . .  Finish your breakfast."


And then I said it, those immortal words that every parent has or will utter in their parenting journey.

"Because I said so."

Poop?  Where does he come up with that kind of logic?  Don't ask me I don't know, and no poop is NOT on my grocery list.

His new favorite hiding place.

hee hee hee this made me laugh. They are so funny when they are trying out new words and making sense of grammar.

boy do we hear the word "Why" a lot at our house too. It will probably get worse before it gets better. At least we never seem to run out of poop. :-) There is always plenty at our house.
