Kids Say the Darndest Things

It's time for another installment of...

Kids Say the Darndest Things.

Last week the prince asked one of his teachers, "Why do our eyes only see outside? Why can't they turn around and look inside of our bodies?" His teacher was pretty smart about this one. She told him that God made us that way and that He looks on the inside and we're just supposed to look outside. I thought that was pretty smart of her. By the way, I've never wondered that and now I wonder why I never thought of it.

This morning I was having a conversation with the princess and she was talking about wild animals. She started talking about snakes and what types of things they eat. She said that snakes sometimes eat eggs from other animals "and sometimes they eat their own little baby snakes. I think they must eat their kids because they can't afford to have that many kids." Hmmmm....

And then when we pulled up to Sunday School this morning, Princess said, "Mom, I see Grandma's Catholic over there."
Me: Grandma's what?
Princess: Grandma's Catholic
Me: Do you mean Grandma's Cadillac?
Princess: Yes, Grandma's Cadillac. So then what's a Catholic?
Me: That's a kind of we're Methodist and there's Baptist, then there's also Catholic like Dawn and Tony.
Princess: Oh.
Yes, they've been keeping me on my toes lately. Have a good week, everyone!


  1. You could've used Scott's old line about how a Methodist is just a watered-down Catholic. His words...not mine...XOXO

  2. That's very true, with Episcopalians in the middle. :P

  3. Very cute! I love the funny things that they say.
