One day while visiting my mother’s home on Long Island I overheard my
children in the kitchen. My son said to his twin sister, “Kate, do you
know what a stool softener is?” She said, “Yeah, it’s the cushion on
the stool that Grandma always uses”. That was the end of that.
Thank you Alicia for a great example of “Kid Logic”!
A few weeks ago my daughter who is 13 and exceptionally bright was sitting in the kitchen putting on toe socks. If you dont know what these are they are like gloves for your feet. Each toe has an individual spot to go in. I walk into the kitchen and she says you know what they should invent? What I say? Mittens for your feet.

trudged along and asked some other people we saw. We showed them the picture of the
fountains and they sent us a different way. It was getting later and later and it
was obvious we walked in circles. I was scared but trying not to show it. We were
all getting tired. Finally, after over an hour, we found the correct fountain and
turned the corner to see our lone car under the streetlights.
“I TOLD YOU!” yelled my six year old daughter! We laughed and it broke the tension. Ironically, had we
listened to the little one, we would have been on the street where the car was
