The things kids say...

Yesterday we were in Ponoka at Chris' parents' house. Chris's sister and her 4 children were there as well. The 11 of us were eating dinner and chatting when Luca says:

Luca: "Nona?"
Nona: "Yes Luca?"
Luca: "Why are you so old?"


Needless to say, all the adults around the table burst out laughing, but Luca was quite serious. I can't remember if Nona answered him or not...

That's awesome! That reminds me of the time when my niece asked if she could draw my mom young. Of course you can said my mom. Good, she said, because I don't know how to draw wrinkles hahaha!

Oh, Luca, how I love you. So fantastic.

It reminds me of the time Ava argued with me that Jason must be older than me because he's bigger than I am. She couldn't grasp that a person could be bigger and yet younger, which I suppose makes sense to a 3 year old because they are always smaller than kids who are older than them. Kids are fascinating creatures.

After reading this story it reminded me of the time my little brother, who is much younger than me 15yrs younger, walks up to my grandpa when he was about 2or3 and just came out and said "You are bald Grandpa" and continued on his merry way!!
Kids say the darnest things! LOL
