A giggle to start the day


Chickie was watching Postman Pat this morning. In the show, one of the characters was going through a cupboard and playing with an old gramophone and some instruments. Chickie asked what some of them were so I just named them as they were pulled out.

One of the instruments pulled out was a recorder, so I named it. Chickie then said (in a very sage tone) "some people call that a stick".

A giggle is always a good way to start the day :)

Kids have a remarkable ability to cut through the complexities of life and see things in the simplest of ways. It's refreshing to see life through their eyes, and examples like this bring warmth to my heart.

Thanks for sharing this. I'll never look at a recorder quite the same way again!

Children can be very literal in their speech and understanding as well - whenever we suggest that we might have dinner "on the deck", Holly says "No, we'll sit on the chairs".

carmi - I have a feeling anytime I see a recorder, I'm going to mentally call it a stick too...

h&s - lol, she's a cutie.

Oh my...you're not so clever if you can't tell the difference between a recorder and a stick. Lucky you have some one small to point it out for you! How did you ever get by before?

That's cute. And completely logical.

My boy pulls stuff like that on me too.

r2k - have had a look and am trying to think of something witty!

tracey - I was obviously clueless before the small one was here... don't know how I ever managed ;)

rhea, charm and chase - I think he's pretty cute too. Kids come out with hilarious stuff sometimes.

That's hilarious !

I guess that old adage that if it's brown & sticky, it is indeed a stick .. is true !

I loved this story. I hope Chickie will learn to play the stick one day. Maybe one day Chickie will be a concert stick-ist.
