It’s a new edition of Goofy Monday! Did you miss it? I think being around kids is a great way to keep your brain alert and working. And constantly confused. I love how kid logic works. Kids really do say the darndest things.

Deep conversation for breakfast
Son #1: “Mama, when we’re all done with this life, can I have the box?”
Me: “What? Life? Box?”
Son #1: “This box.” (shaking the Life cereal box)
Me: “Phew!”
Warning: eating Life cereal can lead to conversations that are way, way too deep for breakfast time.

Star Wars Logic
Son #1 (looking at a Star Wars book): “It looks like the guys Darth Vader killed. But not the ones that are dead.”
Hmm, I think I need a Star Wars refresher… Which guys would those be?

Bucket of army men
We’re driving through San Diego’s Balboa Park, on the way to the zoo.
Son #1: “Wow, I just saw some army men. But not the plastic kind.”
Haha, why do kids have to insert toy references to every conversation?

Money doesn’t grow on trees
Son #1: “Who wants $400?”
Son # 2: “Meeeee!”
Son #1: “Then you’ll have to earn $400.”
I guess that’s why they call seven the age of reason. He’s learning fast.

I’m a dork
Son #1: “Let’s play the word guessing game. I’ll go first. It starts with a D.”
Me: “Hmm, I think we need more clues.”
Son #1: “It’s something to do with the pool.”
Son #2: “Water! Jump! Splash!”
Me: “Oh, I don’t know. Dehydrated?” (Wow, did I seriously just say that???)
Son #1: “No! It’s dive, like a submarine.”
Now, wouldn’t you love to see a submarine dive in a pool?
