Kids say the darnest things.

Leaving the gym with my daughter who was about 4.5 yrs old at that time, we are driving in a truck and she is sitting in the car seat in the front with me.

A cab drives by with an African guy driving it. She says ih her own words, dad I want to be a cab dlivel (driver) but only bwak (black) people can be cab drivers.

I said what, what did you just say.

I was like, look baby, you can be whatever you want, skin color doesnt matter, but I have no idea why you want to be a cab driver though, how about a doctor, scientist, teacher or something like that.

We get home and I figured out the puzzle, the neighbor an Ethiopian family is a cab driver aswell and she put 2 and 2 together and thought that it was the way the world is, kids see the world in the simplest ways.

Just some things that you as a father dont forget about what the kids say.

IF even half the population was as opened minded as children then the world would probably be a better place.

When I was young in the car with my mom, I guess she had a habit of calling other drivers idiots or dummies out loud in the car when they did something dumb.

One day I corrected her by saying, "mommy, that idiot is no dummy."

I wish I could remember more than just the story. My guess is that he cut us off but did it well where he kept moving and didn't slow us down. So I concluded that he was not dumb but an idiot that knew what he did.

Still doesn't bother me if someone cuts it close in the car so long as they seem competent and keep moving. The idiots that do it without knowing you are there on the other hand.... idiots.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

And my grandmother always used to tell me to eat my carrots and I could see in the dark. (Not sure why because I liked carrots and ate them without complaint.)

Anyhow, one day she said this to me and I turned her and said, "But I can reach the light switch now." I don't think I could pull it down yet but I could flick it up to turn it on.

My friend's kid wanted to know how Santa got around the alarm system and figured that deal out on his own. Good stuff.

LOL

So these stories are older kids but-

My dad was a principal. Back in the 70's there were no dress codes.
Large breasted girl approx 8th grade was dressing in a way that was causing a lot of excitement with the guys and generally being a distraction.

Dad calls the mom in for a meeting, she shows up dressed just like the daughter dresses, big boobs, no bra and all.

Dad said, "Never mind, we took care of the situation." There was no winning that one.

Another time, similar thing but the kid was in trouble for cussing a lot.

Parent comes in, dad explains problem, parent turns and cusses the kid out using every word in the book.
Turns back to my dad with a straight face and in all seriousness says, "I don't know where he gets it from but you let me know if it continues to be a problem."

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.
