Kids really do say the funniest things. And they have the funniest logic.
Allow me to share an example of a conversation that went on in the car between my husband and son on the way to renew Q’s passport today. We were listening to music, and one of Q’s latest things is to ask about the name of the song and the artist who sings it. Here’s how it all went down:
Q:”Daddy, what song is this?”
M: “It’s called NIB”
Q:”Who sings this song?”
M:”It’s Ozzy Osbourne, you know, the guy who sings Crazy Train” [Note: Q loves Crazy Train, but refuses to believe that is the name, and calls it Crazy Tree instead]
Q:”Oh, Ozzy Osbourne. Hmmm.”
M:”It’s a really old song, dude. It was made about 10 years before Mummy and Daddy were even born!”
Q:”Not it’s not. It’s not an old song, it’s a good song!”
[Insert muffled, hysterical laughter here from Mummy, who is sitting in the passengers seat with a hand clamped over her mouth]
M:[totally deadpan] “Buddy, it is an old song. It can be an old song and a good song, you know.”
Q:”No. No it’s not. It’s a good song.” He was completely serious about it. There was NO way that he would believe that it could be both an old song and a good one. Nope, one or the other, that was it.
By this time, I is literally shaking with laughter and using everything possible not to laugh out loud, lest he think that I am laughing at him. Oh, to be 3 again.
