Next year I hope to have some stories from the Logical Kid Community….but we are so new and I could not remember any of my own so I looked around the Internet and found this one. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and thanks to the folks who have already submitted some fun stories. Be sure to check back to see them soon!
Thanksgiving Logic – Dad must be waiting for the biggest piece of pie!
Jolene was only 8 and lived with family in the country with her parents and brother. Consequently they did not often have visitors from the city. One day Jolene’s mother said that father was bringing two guests home for Thanksgiving supper.
After they had enjoyed the turkey, Jolene went to the kitchen to help her mother, and proudly brought in the first piece of pumpkin pie and gave it to her father. He then passed the plate to a guest. When Jolene came in with the second piece and gave it to his father, he again gave it to a guest.
This was too much for Little Jolene, who blurted out, ‘It’s no use, Daddy. The pieces are all the same size.
I also scanned a number of nice parent blogs this morning and thought this was a very nice thank you from a popular Mom Blogger. Enjoy!
Years ago when my son who is now 21 was being potty trained, I took him to a store called Courtesy Home Buiders. This was a store like Home Depot. He must have been 2-3 years of age. He was very good in the training stage but had this unique pose for doing number one. He would lift the toilet seat and use his left hand to hold the seat and lean against it. I mention this because you need to visualize this to get a better appreciation of the story. Well at the store we were getting things for a home project and Courtesy had unique toilet display. The toilets formed a circle with different layers forming a pyramid effect. Twenty toilets at the base and one single toilet at the top. Imagine the display towered about 15 feet high. Well, guess who climbed the display and stood at the top toilet for all to see and he proceeded to use the toilet. He was very proud of being successful. The store manager was not so pleased and I could never properly explain to my son why there was no water in the toilet to flush. Oh and I never did ask him why he chose the top toilet either.

“What do you think brother is doing right now?”
That was the question from our 11 year old daughter.
She knew that her older brother had been invited to attend a major college football game and he had left early in that morning to drive several hours to the game with his friend and the family that had the season tickets.
My wife said – “Well the game starts in a couple hours so I imagine he is tailgating”
This concerned our daughter greatly. She was visibly upset and nervous.
“What’s the matter?” I said.
“Well I hope he doesn’t get hurt or arrested because tailgating is illegal and dangerous. Why is he tailgating anyway?”
It then dawned on us that the only definition of tailgating our girl knew was of the driving in a car nature versus the festivities before a football game.
Kids say the darnedest things…..
And their logic is infectious.
This site invites parents, siblings, grandparents, friends and everyone to share the funniest, cutest and best of the logic your kids have ever displayed!
