More than likely you know from where babies come. I got a whole new perspective during a conversation with the princess. 

I was piddlin' in the kitchen, half-way prepping to make cinnamon rolls to take to our church Harvest Festival the next day. The princess came over, sat at the table, and held a board book that she found earlier in the day. It was a small book of colors that featured small children on each page. Then, she said, 
"Mama when you want to have a baby you go to the hospital because that is where pregnant ladies go to have a baby and they put the baby in a thing that looks like a fish tank but it doesn't have any water in it because the water is in a bottle for the baby to drink and sometimes it has a straw in it so the baby can go 'slurp' and get a drink when it wants to ..." 

(I apologize for not using punctuation, but I don't think she used any! --- Come to think of, I guess it wasn't really a conversation either.)


The next day, I had just finished mixing the cream cheese frosting for the cinnamon rolls, when the princess asked if she could lick the beater. I said she could. As I tried to scrape most of the frosting off the beater, she said, "I can lick it off faster." She's such a good helper.

I'm linking to Tiny Talk Tuesday so you can see what other cute things the children are saying. 

The grass is green. It’s good to be

    That is too cute. My daughter is 11, and she would still say that she could lick off the frosting faster than I could scrape it off. lol! She gets rather excited when I make frosting as she knows that she gets to lick the beater. ;)

I'm around kids and critters all day. I'd appreciate some adult human conversation. Please leave a comment.
