Conversation with a 4 year old
Today's conversation with Emmett began with him attempting to quote Woody from Toy Story. "There's a snake in my boot!" Emmett loudly proclaimed, followed by, "Somebody turn on the water pole." I tried not to laugh out loud, but it was funny. Liliana explained to Emmett that what Woody really said was, "Somebody's poisoned the waterhole." Emmett's response was, "How is the water poisoned?" I responded with, "Somebody put vegetables in the water." It is an ongoing joke at our house that Emmett must be convinced that vegetables are poisonous, because no matter how many different ways I prepare and serve them, Emmett won't even sample them. To this Emmet replied, "No. Water is for drinking and vegetables are for eating." At which point I asked, "If that is the case, then why won't you eat any vegetables?" After a short moment to think, Emmett responded with, "Because vegetables don't like boys." So there you have it.
