More Conversations With A 3 Year Old
It’s time for another round of conversations with the craziest three-year-old I know! Okay, she’s kind of the only three-year-old I know, but still. (If yours is similar and/or crazier, you have my sympathies.) Ready? Here we go:
As I’m scrubbing the toilet, Caro runs in, carrying a tiara. She stops dead and stares at me.
Me: Hey Caro, what’s up?
Caro: Well, I was gonna put this on you, but if you was a princess I don’t think you’d be doing that.
Me: Caro, I think your shoes are on the wrong feet.
Caro: Yeah, I like to mix it up.
Caro, to a little girl at the playground: “Hi! Wanna be my friend? You can’t have my mama, but you can borrow my shoes if we’re the same size.”
Caro: Mama, I stubbed my toe!! How am I ever gonna walk again?!
Me: Aww, Caro, don’t be a drama queen.
Caro: I’m NOT the drama queen. That’s you. I’m the drama princess.
As I’m running the water for the shower, Caro realizes what I’m doing, runs in to the bathroom, and hollers “MAMA! Quit wasting water, you’re making the Earth sick!!”
Caro: Mama, anything you dream, you can achieve.
Me: Well, that’s true. Who told you that?
Caro: Some Cheez-It at preschool.
I explain to Caroline that we are moving for my new job.
Caro: Are we gonna take all of your shoes with us?
Caro: (incredulously) Like, ALL of them?
Me: Come on, I don’t have THAT many shoes.
Caro: Wow. We’re gonna need a really big box.
Realtor: So do you have any questions about the house?
Caro: Excuse me, are princesses allowed?
Caro: Mama, can we have broccoli and popcorn for dinner?
Me: I don’t think those would go very well together.
Caro: STOP. You’re not a scientist.
Caro, playing in our new sunroom recently after we moved to Massachusetts, hollers in dismay: “Oh, no!! MOM!! There are ANTS in Massachusetts! I can’t BELIEVE this!!”
Planetarium guy: Boys and girls, where do you think the sun goes at night?
Caro: (hand shoots up) In the garbage disposal. You can’t put your hands in there.
Any hilarious preschooler conversations to share? I’ve been stressed to the max lately and would love to hear them in the comments!
