Mom, if I had a choice between a puhmillion pieces of gum and one, I’d choose the puhmillion. (5yr old)
me: Ok, didn’t we have a talk about there being no such thing as a puhmillion?
Yes. So mom, if I had a choice between a thousand pieces of gum…
….. 5 miles down the road ……
me: Hey! I just saw a shooting star!
7yr old boy: Are you going to make a wish?
me: Yes I already did. I wish your dad to be home safely from his trip.
5 yr old girl, completely matter of fact and without missing a beat because obviously she’s been thinking of this: I wish to be a mermaid.
me: What do you wish for T?
7yr old boy: Mom there are wish rules. I can’t tell you. But, I wish for everybody to just be quiet!!!!
And so ended our conversation as we pulled into the yard tonight.
