A New Sierraism
I always love the way a kid's brain works, how they don't quite hear things the way I do, or think the same way as an "adult". My kids have always been great at coming up with saying things that make me giggle or look at things in a new light. Some classics- "I can't find my diarrhea book" (meaning her diary :) or "the water in the bathtub is just Jacob cold" (meaning Luke warm) 2 favorites in my book. Well....Sierra came up with a new one the other day- (btw- the first two sayings were not Sierra's- Thanks to Lisa and Kira- and for being about 5 or 6 years old when you said them :) This new one is from Sierra a few days ago, that's what makes this really good. Conversation between Sierra and her dad- Sierra, "We went four wheeling today and saw a badger! It was awesome!" Eddie, "Too bad you didn't have a fur bearer permit, you could have shot it." Sierra, looking confused, " No dad, it wasn't a bear, it. was. a. badger." (She said that last part real slow, like Eddie was slow :) I guess she hear fur bear permit, I don't know what goes on in her thought process, she just makes me laugh a lot. She told me the other day that she didn't want to interview with the dentist for a year, just a semester. HUH? Interview? Oh, internship, you mean intern with the dentist? "Oh yeah, ha ha." blonde.
