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!!!!
