Over at Owlhaven, she was commenting on what one of her 6 yr olds had said about swimming. It was the perfect conversation of logic that come from the young.
It made me remember a conversation I had with Ben (5) just a few days ago. It went sort of like this....
Ben: Did you have a seat like mine when you were little mum?
Me: You mean the booster seat on your chair?
Me: I don't remember darling, but probably. You will have to ask Grandma and Grandad?
Ben: Ok. Was I around when you were little?
Me: No, not when mummy and daddy were little like you.
Ben: Oh, so who were my parents when you were little?
Me: Well you were not born yet.
Ben: Was I still in your tummy then?
Me: (trying not to laugh) Sort of
Ben: Could I talk when I was in your tummy?
Then the other one joined in.....
Alex: Did I talk when I was in your tummy?
Me: I don't know, did you talk? Does a baby talk?
Both of them: No, a baby cries lots!
