Current mood: thirsty
My 4 year old daughter loves to browse through storybooks whenever she has free time ( which is pretty much all the time,) and although she can’t read yet, she narrates stories from her imagination which are loosely based on the pictures, or on movies or tv she’s recently seen, or which simply seem to be pulled randomly from the ether. Some of the things she says are so odd I just have to write them down. I offer a few here for your consideration. Cryptic wisdom, or the ramblings of a child?

We’re not just going to learn about doggies today. We’re learning about mutation.
I wonder if kitties can sniff planets. What if a planet got stuck in a tree?
Good Dinner Child, this is your job.

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall… into a cave
Humpty Dumpty walked in the cave
Humpty Dumpty met up with monsters
Humpty Dumpty was cryin’!
