Random Funnies

So I'm feeling much better after that second ER run, currently relaxing in front of the TV with Mackers and America's Funniest Home Videos, which got me thinking about kid logic, and some of the funny things little folks do. I did my own share of funny things, but there's one incident in particular that I can recall with absolute clarity. I even remember the "kid logic" behind this one, and I thought I would blog it for posterity.

I was perhaps seven, and had a porcelain tea set. My Mom was away from home this particular evening so I was in the care of a babysitter. The babysitter was unfamiliar, so I was content to stay in my room with my tea set and books and my dolls.

I called out to the babysitter to ask if I could have some water for my pretend tea, and was told no, water would make a mess because I could spill it. This made sense to Little Me. Water, after all, was wet, so I looked around my room for an alternative.

Suddenly, I had it. Baby Powder! It was sitting right on top of my dresser, I could pour it, and it wasn't wet!

Turns out, it *was* still messy... Luckily, Mom was too busy laughing to be upset, when she did come home.

No deep thoughts today, folks.

Keep hanging in there

responding to your comment on my post:
thanks Ashley. One of the other things I did for Wonder Girl is to let her express her anger. She told me the other night, "mom. I'm mad the dog bit me but you were like, 'i'm so glad you're ok' and ... yeah" I took it to mean that she felt she couldn't be mad because I wasn't. I was relieved the bite wasn't worse! So I wrote her a letter. "Dear WG, I'm mad the dog bit you too. Love, Mom" And WG was REALLY happy to know I felt that way.
