News From the Back Seat

Yesterday we had some friends over after school.  This was a particularly fun playdate because we picked up those friends after school, so we had my 2 boys plus the 2 friends all in the back of the van coming home.  Z and D were over the top excited about having company in the car.

I have to admit that I have always loved hearing conversations between my kids and their friends.  It always makes me laugh to hear what they choose to talk about.  This time, I saw that there was a definite difference between the conversations of 3 year olds, and conversations of 5 year olds.

The 3 year olds went like this:

D- ” I like Buzz Lightyear.  We can play Buzz Lightyear.  I have Woody too.”

Friend- ” Okay.”

The five year olds, however, were a bit more entertaining.  It started out like this:

Friend-  “I have a baby.  She doesn’t move around or anything”.

Z-  ” Does she throw up?”

Then, I heard the friend say, “I will tell you a secret.”  Z then loudly announced to me that they were going to be telling secrets.  I think he was trying to tell me that I was not supposed to listen.  I’m not quite sure what I was supposed to do.  I was just driving the van, minding my own business.

Anyway, of course I listened when I heard that they were telling “secrets”.  Here is their conversation:

Friend- “You know who is disobedient, and does something inappropriate every day at school?”  (Yes, this friend has quite the vocabulary!)

Z-”  Who?”

Friend-  “Sarah.  She kisses Tommy every day!”

Z-” WHY?!?!”

Friend- “She wants to marry him”.

Z- “I don’t want to marry ANYBODY!”

Friend: “Well, I want to marry somebody.  But I know who it ISN’T going to be….  Sarah.  That’s for sure!”

Ha ha ha!  I loved it.  Just please don’t tell Mr. Z that I was not only listening, but blogging about their “secret”!
