Regarding E.'s fascination with where things are made:
E: Mommy, this bouncy ball is made in...let's see...China!
Me: Really? Wow.
E: I guess there are more things made in China than in Utah!
Me: (thinking...you think?)
Regarding E.'s fascination with geography:
E: Mommy, Russia is the biggest thing in the world!
M: You're right E., it is the largest country in the world.
E: It's even bigger than China! the United States! and even bigger than Utah!
We need to go on a trip...
One morning while getting ready in the bathroom with two of the kids:
L. (in all seriousness): "Mommy, you have same glasses as Santa?"
Me: "You think my glasses look like Santas?"
L.: "Yeah, Mommy!"
I'll take that as a not-so-subtle hint that I need new glasses...who wants to be compared to an 80-year-old man, even if he is Santa! :)
