our DD (5) is always saying something ridiculous - it has just become the norm in our house now & usually doesnt even register as something to retell... eeek.. LOL
this morning while she was getting ready for school, she was getting quite agitated & kept looking at the fireplace.. we have one of those oven style ones, you know, with the glass doors, not the open fireplace type ones.. anyway, i was getting kinda cross, as we were already running super late & she kept trying to get over to the fireplace... it went something like this:
Me: DD WHAT are you doing?? come back & finish getting ready for school, the bell has already gone!!
DD: Just wait, i need to open the door on the fire!!
Me: WHAT - stop being ridiculous - it's 830 in the morning & it's 38 degrees alraedy, leave the fireplace alone & finish getting ready for school
DD: but mum, if santa comes today to check out what toys i need for Christmas, he will come down the chimbley & get stuck in the fire box!
Me: cant he just go back up the chimney?
DD: no, he can only come down the chimbley - he needs to come out the fire box - the door needs to be open!!
Me: OK, open the door then.. how does he get out of the house then if he cant go up the chimney?
DD: he goes out the front door silly - how else would he get out??
Me: well, i wasnt sure, that's why i asked!! how silly am i - i should've already known that.
DD: yes, you should of, cause youre the mum & youre supposed to know everything....
Oh my... god i love kids...
