The Mind of My 5 Year Old

I know I have posted a lot about Joshua lately, but this is just too good.

Joshua: Mom, I love Grandma the very most of everyone.
Me: Oh really? You love Grandma more than you love me?
Joshua: Yes. She's in first place. (Pause) Mom, I'm going to tell you something, and it's probably going to make you really angry.
Me: OK...
Joshua: Grandma is a lot cooler than you are...
Me: Oh yeah?
Joshua: Yeah, and I like her face a lot better than I like yours.
Me: Thanks, buddy.

Don't you wish your child was as honest as mine?

Gotta love the honesty of kids. Well at least it's grandma he admires and not your neighbor or a babysitter :)

That is too funny! He is too much. At least grandma will be happy with that comment.

That is so funny! Grandma should be smiling big though! It must be all the chocolate and sweets she gives?

Melissa said...

Ouch! You know it's bad when your mom is cooler than you are! Sheesh! :)

That's funny, it reminds me of one of my kindergarteners my first year teaching. She said she liked my face.
