Once upon a time - this afternoon, to be exact - Sam sat at the kitchen table eating his snack of goldfish crackers.
Joined by Caleb...
Sam: "Look Caleb, power stars and power fish!"
Caleb: "No Sam, just power stars. `Cause you know, shooting stars? They're really powerful."
Sam: "Oh. Yeah."
Caleb: "And Minnesota doesn't have any shooting stars. That's how powerful they are."
Sam: "You want one of my fish?"
Caleb: "Yeah, then I'll be able to swim. I'll go right into the basement wall."
It's like reading a conversation translated from a different language by someone who doesn't speak English.
No kidding. Not only do I live in a house with a bunch of young kids, they're not even fluent in my language! No wonder...
This brings back such memories! I loved listening in when my son was little and sitting with his friends. I wish I had recorded some of the conversations.
