The World as My 5-Year-Old Sees It
Kids say the darndest things. Bill Cosby reprised a classic show and kept his television career going on that truth. And most every parent has their gems from their own little ones. These days my 5 year old son keeps the house smiling and chuckling with commentary on the world as he sees it. A couple examples for a Saturday morning laugh.
After watching an episode of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends episode that features the “Lake of Inconvenience”:
Titus says: “I know what ‘inconvenience’ means now. It’s like when you’re on your way to church and you forget your Bible or your preaching costume, and you have to go all the way back home to get it. That’s an inconvenience.”
Okay, yeah, that’s an inconvenience. But ”preaching costume”?? For the island boy who doesn’t like to wear any form of “dress clothes” (i.e., any shirt with buttons or shoes other than flip flops), I guess I see why he’d call it that. As for what he thinks of my preaching… I’ll let you guess!
Kristie: “Titus, you look well enough to go to Bible study and your nose isn’t so runny any more.”
Titus: “Yes it is. I put my finger in there and it was still wet.”
