Car Conversations

C: "HONK-shoo, HONK-shoo, HONK-shoo." (Great snoring impressions for a just two year old, I might add. I wish you had the audio…)

Mom: "Oh, are you taking a nice little rest until we get home?"

C: "No. I honk-shooing."

P: "Oh, I thought you were snore-shooing."

"On a Line"

A conversation with my 8 year old in the car on the way home might go something like this.

I was explaining to her how my school, a Montessori school, works, and what the environment is like. I was telling her that very rarely are all the kids in the classroom doing exactly the same thing at the same time.

She asks, "So if it were a line, like 10-1, what would it be?"

I missed the "line" part of the question, and am thinking she means something about time, from 10am to 1 pm. But I'm still lost, so I dig deeper to understand her question.

"You know, if it were a line. Like 10-1, would it be like a 9?"

I hear the line part of the question this time. And her example- a 9. And it all makes sense. She's asking, in her 8 year old way, if it were a 1-10 scale, would it be at a 9 (with all the kids doing different things)?

Love the way her mind works!
