Non Sequiturs Du Jour

March 16, 2011 by Rieshy

6:30 a.m. The house was quiet.  My 3 year old and I were quietly eating chocolate chip cookies before the rest of the family could catch us and call foul.  Suddenly, I heard a voice call out from my 5 year old's bedroom, "Mom, you really need to get me a dog."

Uh, hmmm.  Request noted, and filed.  Now hide those cookie crumbs, witnesses are awake.

A few minutes later both 5 and 3 year old were sitting at the kitchen island drinking milk when my 3 year old looked at me and said, "I only have a small balloon swimming pool up over MY house."

5 year old responded, "That balloon freaks me out.  I mean, how do you get down?"

I'm just glad I knew what they were talking about.  

 Thank you Dr Seuss for the morning smile.

Funny how we train our minds to follow what doesn't. Dr. Seuss rocks. I'm partial to Horton.

Balloon swimming pools freak me out too. Dr. Seuss was a genius. I wish I could be more like him. Heck, I wish everyone could be like him!
