Conversations With Child #2

Me: "Makell, why oh why is there a razor sitting on your dresser?"

Kellie: "Because I shaved my arms. And my legs."

Me: "Your 9. You don't shave."

Kellie: "Well, I want to."

Me: "Did you know that once you shave your arms that even more hair is going to grow back?"

Kellie: "What! Why didn't you tell me that!"

*****

Scene: Driving in the car with Addie and Makell. Addie is sitting in the bucket seat behind me, but leaning her body all the way over to the other bucket seat so that she is almost laying down. I have repeatedly asked her to sit up. She's deaf.

Me: "Addie, do you know what is going to happen to you if we get hit by a car? You'll be killed. All because you won't obey me. I hope you're OK with that."

Makell: "Hmm. Well, that could be good and bad."

Me: "What?"

Makell: "Well, it would be good because then I would be able to play with my friends alone. You know, without Addie. But then it would be bad because, you know, she'd be.....like.....dead."

With stories like that you should be excited to be driving to Ky with them. Think of the conversations. I hope you bring a pen a paper so you can write them down and blog them all after the trip.

the "shaving makes your hair grow back more/thicker" thing is a myth... .it just looks that way because it hasn't been bleached by the sun as much.

enjoy your scientific fact for the day.
