Four-year-old logic

I was just having one of those critical, sensitive conversations with Catherine. Today the topic was wheelchairs.

I explained: "Well, Catherine, some people walk, and some people can't walk, and the people who can't walk use wheelchairs."

She considered this briefly, and responded matter-of-factly: "You can't sit in a wheelchair because your butt's too big."

Oh no!
I have one of those timex watches, only in pink. So far it's been pretty robust.
Cold-water swims without a wetsuit? Never!

The other day our older son said the younger one had called someone ugly. I said that it's not nice to call someone ugly and he said "I didn't say ugly, I said he was fat." An hour later he called me fat, too. They come up with the funniest stuff- although not always funny at the time.
