Kids have so much to say. Their young minds work from such an innocent place.
My granddaughter has her own idea of the cycle of life. She’s yet to realize the true order of aging and death. She often tells me about being 4 years old as if she’s explaining the event so I’ll know all about it when I am 4 again.
“Grandma, you’ll know when you get to be 4.”
She says this to me often because I question her about life from her perspective. It is the funnest thing that I can do, watching kids at play and listening to their conversations.
Their language is superb. Daniel Webster could have shortened that dictionary a bunch by following the rules that they use.
Porcupines are made of porks.
To me, gots sounds much more proprietary than has.
The phrase,”after later”, makes perfect sense. I use it myself.
If a bubble maker makes bubbles, then a mechanic makes mechans and a doctor just docs.
Slipperly sounds so much more slippery than slippery.
Katherine once told her great-grandmother to “keep her face on” when she couldn’t find the words to tell her to watch for a letter in the mail.
The newest scientific discovery of hers came while we were lying in the camper bed with our heads against the window. First, when watching rain falling up, one needs to hold their nose or drown. Second, the skin on the inside of Grandma’s arm is younger than the outside. We are both watching for it to spread. Maybe I have a good chance to be 4 again?
When you think about it, everything just “IS” to kids. They seem to be the only ones who really know what is is 🙂 .
In the end, who’s to say that the moon isn’t following us and that monsters aren’t under the bed?
