Lib says the darndest things

Remember Bill Cosby’s Kids Say the Darndest Things?

I reckon I could make a whole television series based on my own daughter’s pearls of wisdom.

Right now, I’m sitting here attempting to finish chapter five of my second novel and the words aren’t coming. So, I thought I’d procrastinate by sharing some of the pearlers that have passed Libby’s lips of late:

Lib: “Why did Cinderella wear glass slippers?”

Me: “I’m not sure, maybe she thought they looked nice.”

Lib: “Maybe she couldn’t find her Crocs.”

Me: “You can be very manipulative sometimes, Lib.”

Lib: “Well, you’re a watermelon.”

Me: “What should we name the new cat? How about Snowball?”

Lib: “How about Scarface?”

Lib: “When I grow up, I want to be an artist who designs buildings.”

Me: “That’s awesome.”

Lib: “Or maybe a fire fighter, or a witch, or a frog.”

Lib: “When I grow up I want to be a farmer.”

Me: “What will you farm? Cows?”

Lib: “No, foxes. Or maybe people.”

Lib: “Mum, you’re my best friend.”

Me: “Oh, that’s so sweet.”

Lib: “And Dad, he’s my best friend too.”

Me: “He would be happy to hear that.”

Lib: “And that tree. That tree is my best friend too.”

And finally, a rule I’ve now decided to live by:

Lib: “It’s ok to eat lots of chocolate… just say you’ve been eating salad and no one will know.”

Cool Lib

    Made me laugh. Especially the last one. I remember saying I love you to my now husband, then watching telly and seeing a chocolate cake and saying I love that cake and then getting a present of some coloured pencils and saying I love pencils. He now reckons he doesn’t feel very special. I was younger then, about 49. I love Lib’s chocolate is salad approach. more of it, I say.
