One of my favorite things about this season of parenting is the conversations we have with our kids.
Between a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old we have plenty of moments that could come straight out of a parenting sitcom.
Here are a few recent ones:
Kharis: Dad, can I have pink raisins?
Me: I don’t think they make pink raisins.
Kharis: I want pink EVERYTHING!
Josiah: Dad, what does ‘commitfornication’ mean? (he thought it was one word)
Me: Where on earth did you hear that?
Josiah: Our teacher said that at church one time. (he hadn’t been to church in over a week)
Josiah: What is a commitfornication?
Me: <insert lame attempt at a safe-for-a-4-year-old response>
(on the way home from picking out a new toy)
Josiah: Dad, this toy blows my mind up! I just knew that we were going to find something that would blow my mind up!
Josiah: Dad, what is a basement?
Me: <explanation of a basement>
Josiah: So it’s something you have to buy.
Me: Well, it’s something that you have to buy when your house is being built.
Josiah: Well how do you get to the basement?
Me: You just go down stairs.
Kharis: I want some pink stairs for Christmas and then we can all go downstairs and see our basement!!!!
