Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale

Kids Say the Darndest Things!

Did you ever watch the show, Kids Say the Darndest Things?  I loved it, as kids do say some really funny things. Many times, it's like, where did they learn that??

Tonight, my husband was watching college football. My almost 5 year old (will be 5 on Friday if you can believe it) asks him which players are the Longhorns.  He replies back that neither team are the Longhorns.

She says, "Oh, then this isn't real life football?"

I told her it was real life because they were playing right now in the State of Alabama.  She says,

"Alabama is a state in our Country. You know how I know that?  They speak English!"

She was so very proud of herself.  The look on her face was priceless...

And as a Mother, I wanted to make sure she understood the United States wasn't the only country that spoke English, so we did talk about a couple of other countries like Canada, England, and Australia.

Kids say some good stuff, especially mine who thinks she's 15 with her eye rolls!
