The workings of a 5yo mind

Two from The Girl (5 y.o.)

1) A week or so ago, the local mall had a kid’s dancing thing during the day, during which they gave out (inexpensive) Michael Jackson style hats to the participating kids. The Girl keeps referring to him as “Uncle Jackson”, despite repeated corrections.

Today she said, “Uncle Jackson took too many medicines, and that’s why he died.”

2) Today in the car, she asked whether ham was a fruit, so we explained the differences between fruits (from trees and bushes) and meat (from animals). Then she said, “You get milk from cows. They have pipes underneath, and you pull them.”

Yeah. Pretty much.
