Kids Say the Darndest Things

Context: Last week (back in America-wow), Elijah was sitting behind the toy ottoman while playing "cafe". He usually offers me milk and then throws it toward me like he's working at a bar, complete with sound affects . This time, he was working at Starbucks and really tried to perfect my drink: Tall soy no water, no foam chai. Yeah, it sounds ridiculous to us adults and we understand what it means! Of course it would sound crazy to a kid.

Elijah: "Mama, are you fursty?"

Me: "Uh, yeah. Totally. How did you know?"

Elijah: "Um, mama, do you want a drink?"

Me: "Sure!"

Elijah: "Ok. No chai, no soy milk, no water, no chai, no soy coffee drink. Here ya go." and he hurls the pretend concoction of nothingness towards me.

Context: During breakfast one day, Elijah randomly gave Dan some very meaningful advice while Dan was cooking.

Elijah: "If we don't, then we don't. If we do, then we do. That's the deal dada." Rarely does anyone say anything that goes overt Dan's head.

I guess you get what you receive, right Sally?
