Things Kids Say

At least once a week Alyce astonishes us with some comment or new word that we have no clue where it came from.  It happens so often you don't think to write them down but you do remember some of the gems and here are a few of them.

This past weekend we asked Alyce what month her birthday was in.  She promptly responded with "October".  Of course we were dumbstruck because we had never taught her any of the months.  We should probably do that at some point, but I don't think we have to.  We asked her where she learned that her birthday was in October and her answer was "school".  Look at that, they actually do teach kids things in school.

A while ago when we got back home from a trip the sky was dark and the moon was up.  Alyce asked if she could go look at the moon.  We take her and Luke out of the car, walk down to the end of the driveway, and look at the moon.  Mom asks Alyce what shape the moon was and Alyce responded with "a crescent".  I was dumbstruck but Mom explained that they talked about crescents in one of her TV shows.  You can learn something from TV.  Later on Alyce said that the moon looked like a banana which seemed a bit more in line with what I'd expect from a 3 year old.

Sometimes Alyce says what she sees and even though it is truthful it may not be tactful.  Today while taking her to school she was sitting in her car seat in the back of my car.  My car isn't the cleanest place in the world as I have the remnants of lots of projects on the floor.  Alyce pipes up and says "Dad, you've got lots of stuff in your car".  I respond back with "yes my car is kind of messy isn't it".  Her reply "yeah, it is really messy".  This coming from the kid with toys scattered all across her room.
