Kids Say the Darnedest Things (Geek Edition)

  • Last week, we let the big kids stay up and watch Survivor: Guatemala (the first season they've been allowed to watch it). Franny kept getting it confused with Lost (which they are most emphatically not allowed to watch). When it was over, she asked, "Next week, can we watch more Lost Guacamole?

  • Last night, on the way to Cub Scouts, Drew was talking about how he wanted to do archery. He stopped, thought about it a minute and said, "You know, a bow and arrow, a slingshot, and a rocket all operate on the same principle. . ." Pretty astute for an eight-year-old!

  • At nap time, I read Alec a book and then sing him a song. Today, when I asked what song he wanted, I expected one of the usual requests ("Bus," aka "The Wheels on the Bus," "Hushbye," or "Staaah," aka "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"). Instead he said "Dane!" I said, "Um, what honey?" "Dane, Dane, sing Dane" - it took me a minute, but I realized what he was asking for. . .Adam taught him "The Ballad of Jayne" from Firefly. . .
