Anna is 3 years 9 months old


  • Anna (out of the blue as usual): Mama, what does “deny” mean?
  • Me: Umm… It means disallow, not let someone do something. For example, “he was denied entry to the castle”. It means that he was not let in. Now, can you use it in the sentence?
  • Anna (singing out of tune): For he is a jolly good fellow that nobody can deny.
  • Me: Oh. It’s a different meaning. It means saying something the opposite of truth. For example, Anna denied making a mess.
  • Anna (grumpily): I get it, mama!
  • 5 minutes later (while skipping around): Hey, mama, I have three different homes.
  • Me: How is so?
  • Anna: I have home where we live, then we have “America, our home, sweet home” and then… (dramatic pause)… a home run!

She makes such fun connections. Sometimes I miss the quiet of being able to listen to, and focus on just one.

Kylie said...

Very cute and very clever. :)

Terra said...

As always, too cute for words!

I remember that I was always like that...I never wanted grown-ups to tell me things that I already knew (even if I didn't really know it). I wonder if my daughter is going to be like that as well?

I would be scared I think....Anna is just so very smart. Goodness knows what questions she will have for you and things she will say by the time she is six but if it were me I'd be thanking my lucky stars that google exists to help me out :-)

I love "staging comments" so that we get a feel for how she spoke. I can almost hear it the way that you wrote it.

Very cute. Love the home run!
