Have you even noticed how sometimes the funniest statements children make are also the ones that show how brilliantly logical their minds are? I’ve had this post planned for awhile, but I wanted to get the words just right. I think I’ve got it.
My son was racing his Hot Wheels cars on the floor one day. He knows all of their names and happened to be playing with one named Asphalt Assault, which he, with typical child syntax, pronounces, “Ass-phalt Assault.” Being a boy (and car-crazy) he of course knows all about roads and their construction.
Suddenly, he stopped playing and looked up at me with a thoughtful expression. “You know what, Mom?” he announced with a slow nod. “I think that when a road starts to get a break in it…it’s called an Ass Crack!”
Okay. So he was a little off on his hypothesis.
But you have to admire the brilliance that went into making that deduction!
Do you have a hilariously ingenious moment from one of your children? I’d love to hear about it!
