Why are you always mean to me? Why can't you just respect me for who I am?--Six year old boy to eight year old boy after two days of fighting
While watching a show on HGTV that randomly speeds decorating procedures up and/edits:
Six year old girl: Jessica, is this real?
Six year old girl: Then how can they go so fast?
After hearing that I received a ticket the other day, the kids freaked out and thought I was going to jail. I told them that the only way I would go to jail is if I didn't pay the ticket. While I was fixing their lunch today, this conversation took place:
Eight year old boy: (said something violent that I can't remember)
Six year old boy: If you did that, you would kill me and then you would go to jail.
Eight year old boy: No, I would just pay the ticket.
At the pool today, the eight year old boy was asking questions about how someone can drown. I explained that if water gets in the lungs then that's how someone drowns. He said, "I don't get it. Why wouldn't they just hold their breath?"
