Fish Friend

My great-granddaughter had been asking for a pet cat or dog. We finally convinced her that it would be better if we got a fish instead. On the way home from purchasing one, she asked, “Are we going to have my fish neutered?”

Back to School

I was going back to school after a 10-year break. My son thought I was going to teach at the school, but I corrected him, explaining that I was going to be a student. Confused, he asked, “But how are you going to get littler?”

Nut Allergy

My husband was explaining to my daughter that she is allergic to nuts, so she can’t eat peanuts or coconuts. She looked at him gravely and asked, “What about donuts, Daddy?” I’ve never seen a bigger smile than when he told her donuts were fine.

Drink Up!

While preparing my sons for their first dinner in a nice restaurant, I explained that they could have a fancy drink called a “kiddie cocktail.”  The boys couldn’t wait to try it. When the waitress asked them what they would like, they both responded, “That cat drink.”

Bagel Breakfast

My daughter was eating a sesame seed bagel for breakfast one day. She picked off a seed, held it up, and said “Hey, I know! If we plant a seed outside, we can grow our own bagel tree!”
