conversations with a three year old

Conversations I had with three year old Tayla as I watched my friends' kids Saturday night:

(While watching The Great Mouse Detective)

Me: I loved this movie when I was little!

Tayla: When you get to three like me, you can watch this too.

~~~

Tayla: Can I pull the kitty's tail?

Me: No.

Tayla: Why not?

Me: Because it will hurt her.

Tayla: Will she scratch me?

Me: Yes, she will scratch you.

(Right. That's all that matters, kid.)

~~~

(While watching WALL-E, the space ship comes back for Eve and takes her away.)

Tayla: But she's good! She's a girl!

(Teach 'em young. Girls=good. Boys=Bad.)

~~~

(Tayla spots a bowl of candy)

Tayla: Ooooh what's that?

Me: That's bad for you.

Tayla: But what is it?

Me: Drugs.

Tayla: *eyeroll*

~~~

Tayla: I want the kitty to sit on my lap.

Me: I can't make her sit on your lap. She does what she wants.

Tayla: Why?

Me: Because she's a cat and she does what she wants. She has to want to. 

Tayla: Make her want to.

~~~

Tayla: Can I have the candy?

Me: Nope.

~~~

Me: Tayla, it's quiet time. Let's read a book and go to sleep.

Tayla: I don't want to.

Me: You don't have to want to. But I'm gonna read this book to your sister. You have to be quiet while we read.

(I read Curious George. About half way through...)

Tayla: I want to see too!

~~~

Tayla: Can I have the candy?

Me: Nope.

~~~

(After the book is done)

Tayla: I'll lay here but I'm keeping my eyes open until Mommy and Daddy get back.

Me: Good luck with that.

I love stories like this. Kids make for such great stories and entertainment with their innocent views of life.

I never liked cats when I was little and was constantly getting scratched, maybe I shouldn't have pulled their tails as much.

awwww, she's so cute. <3

i love it when i see kids who are actually cute, and not some form of fetal pig/ miley cyrus hybrid and then i have to pretend like they're actually adorable.

is that mean? so what.

I LOVE that she gave you an eyeroll when you told her "drugs".

This header is by far my fave! Please keep it for a while!

Tayla is adorable. And "But she's good! She's a girl!" is by far my favorite. I guess she hasn't met Angelina Jolie yet.

Gun- hahahaha! crackup.

Liz- right? she's too smart. and thanks!
