3-Year-Old Insights

Living with a three-year-old is a lot of fun. So far today, D.L.F. has enlightened me with the following comments:

1) He was "making" Baseball Guy touch the computer monitor. D.L.F. said to me, "Mama, will you tell Baseball Guy to stop touching the screen?" I said, "Baseball Guy, sit down on the couch," to which D.L.F. quickly replied, "No, he doesn't have a bum!"

2) "Candy is kind of like beans, only it's candy."

3) And apparently, he remembers his Sunday school lesson from yesterday about Jesus being out in a boat during a storm, because while taking a bath, he started churning up the water and then said, "Peace, be still!"

"That's a Chevrolet," I said. "Some people call it a Chevy."

"But I don't," D.L.F. said adamantly. "I say it the right way. What's the right way again, Mama?"


D.L.F.: "Mama, why is sour cream white?"

Me: "Because it's made from milk, and milk is white."

D.L.F.: "Why is milk white?"

Me: "Uh...."
