out of the mouth of eight...

"Hitler started war but not just Hitler...Hitler started war
but Bush started war, too."

this out of nowhere from a canadian kid whose parents do
not watch any news while the kids are up
{mainly because their mom is certified wimp
who was almost hospitalized in grade six
over the falkland islands thing
and was told then that she was no longer allowed
to watch the news
and has continued on in that fashion...
but i digress}

and tonight, when i scared him by coming out of a room
he thought was empty...
"ahhhh...you scared me...i shut that door...and then it opened
and i thought, it must be a really smart gorilla or it must be mom."

i mean really...where did the gorilla come from?
and a really smart one at that?

he cracks me up.

That's one bright kid you've got there. Too bad more world leaders aren't as smart as an eight year old kid.

I once had a very bad night because I thought flying monkeys had come to get me - gorillas aren't such a stretch.

hahaha I love it! And it's funny how insightful and bright children can be about those kinds of worldly obvious truths that adults so try desperately to say. War. Yes, exactly! It's a great picture too! Thanks for the smiles :)
