sitting on the porch with Davis

q. shenaynay


me, to Davis, who is 5: Who do you think you look like?

Davis: I look like Davis.

(I put my huge sunglasses on him.)

me: Now you look like me.

Davis: Yeah, except for only one thing.

me: what's that?

Davis: You don't have a cookie.

Davis: I think we should have a secret.

me: Okay, if you think so.

Davis: Let me think of one. You can't tell, remember that.

(is blogging the same thing as telling? hmmm.)

Davis: Okay, ready: Dan likes to sit by Caitlin.

me: Wow. You think so?

Davis: Shhhhhhhh.

me: That's a pretty good secret, Big D.

Davis: Well... (big dramatic sigh) I'm glad we don't have to have any more secrets. They're too hard to keep up with.

Davis: So how old are you?

me: How old do you think I am?

Davis: Umm, I'd guess 16.

me: But Davis, Caitlin is 17, so I don't think that works.

Davis: (dead serious) Well... in that case... I'm guessing you're probably one hundred and eighty.

I like the way kids think.

The Squirrels were looking at a potential new treehouse recently, and Crayons (5) noticed a TV in the master bedroom. She said, "This must be a room for girls, because moms and dads don't watch TV."
