C:
I am going to marry S when I get older.
Daddy:
you can't marry your sister.
S:
why not! That isn't fair. That is just an awful rule. Awful.
Parenting at it's best. At least they love each other; just not in that way.

Here comes the fire truck! The people will be surprised that a Christmas tree is helping them. But then he will get out and do a tap dance and everyone will be happy.

My daughter, 6 years old.

Apparently the Christmas tree toy is not only a heroic fire fighter but also a tap dancer. Because everyone could use a little tap dance after being saved.

Don't say hate

Daddy:
please don't say hate. It is not a nice word. You can say "I don't like" but not "hate".
S:
why is it a word then?
Daddy:
there are lots of words that are not nice, that are still words, but you don't say them.
S:
oh. Okay. Well what are they for then? Are they for dinosaurs
(My daughter. Kind of getting the point but somehow getting wildly off track with dinosaurs)

Daddy I hate lemurs. I super hate lemurs and I don’t want to eat them.

My son 3 years old.

Apparently he doesn’t like lemurs. Just for the record I am not perpetuating any lemur stereotypes or discriminations over here. This is a lemur friendly house.
