Sunday Funnies: Making a Fishing Pole

I'm just learning how to knit.   This morning I was starting a project and our 2.5-year-old little guy was a bit intrigued.
T: "What are you doing, Mommy?"
Me: "I'm knitting."
T: Confused by the unfamiliar word, "What?"
Me: "I'm knitting."
T: Still trying to figure it all out and looking at the long needles and yarn, "You're making a fishing pole!" :)

A conversation earlier this week:
Me: "Yay!  We're going to start potty training!"
T: Smiling and excited, "We're going to ride a REAL train!"
Me: Momentary mental blip as I try to process why he is so excited about a train when I'm talking about ditching the diapers.  After replaying the conversation in my mind I realize that his idea of potty training and my idea are COMPLETELY different.  Apparently he thinks that "potty TRAIN-ing" involves riding on a train (presumably one with potties.) ;) 

As a fun twist on the concept we promised that once he is all done with diapers we will, in fact, all go on a train ride (which I'm sure will indeed involve checking out the facilities).  He thinks it is "very excited!"


  1. those are good ones! it's so funny how their little minds work :-)

  2. lol...I love how kids think :0)
