Kids Say The Darnest Things
Remember when Art Linkletter used to collect cute things kids said? Well this weekend was chock full of such funny or not so funny things: Like when my grand daughter looked at me and very seriously announced: "You are old." "You are going to die. Probably when I am thirteen." Later while the two of them were playing together one said to the other: "Let's pretend you die and then I make you alive again." On a lighter note my grand son announced in a very delighted voice that: "I like when we come here because we do lots of art projects!" There was the to be expected large number of requests such as: "Grandma knit Mono (the monkey) a blanket with this yarn." Or "I want to sew a quilt. Or "I love your drum, I want it!" Or referring to my toys: "What can I take home?" I was quite a bit disconcerted when my five year old grand daughter said while I was brushing her thick, rich, lovely long hair: "I wish I had straight hair!" (already at five???) And my favorite of the day, while playing under the "!" mono print art quilt on the wall my grand daughter looked up at it and said pointing: "That is very very beautiful."
