The Darndest Things

My kids are very funny. Here are a few recent gems:

Patch: Ronald McDonald is straight.

I have no idea what he means by this, but I think he means he's tall. As a course of habit, we generally don't discuss sexual orientation with our kids, especially not that of a clown. That would be ridiculous.

Mini-me: It's sexy. You know, like sex (gives her shoulders a little shake).

Yeah, this one worries me, too. Also, her tone while saying it gave me pause. As my mom would say, she should have just added "stupid" to it, because the implication was that I didn't understand what sexy was. But now I do. It's basically shaking your shoulders.

Luckily Ginger doesn't say much, and Flower wasn't home due to the new schedule. Otherwise, who knows what I might have heard?

That's just great. My daughter says the funnies things all the time. I wish I had been better at writing them down in a journal. I knew I should have. But I just didn't....
