Are anyone else's kids like this, or am I just darned lucky?
Here is a typical conversation with my daughter, who is 9. We were driving in the car and she found a catalog for homeschooling materials and saw a book in it about landslides.
HER: "What's a landslide?"
ME: blah blah blah blah (detailed explanation about landslides) ...."and they pretty much destroy everything in their path"
HER: "Really? It destroys EVERYTHING???"
ME: "Well, yes, it does, if it's large enough."
HER: "Like houses, trees, cars??"
ME: "Yes, everything."
HER: "So if I was wearing this shoe, and I was in a landslide, it would destroy my shoe?"
ME: *my left eye is starting to twitch* "YES, it would."
HER: "What about cats? Would it destroy cats?"
ME: *twitch* "YES! It would!"
HER: "So what if I was standing ON the house, WITH a cat, WEARING my shoe. Would it destroy us all?"
At this point, the conversation went downhill.
Yes, I love homeschooling, but conversations like this are why I have grey hairs.....
