    I got an interesting reminder today in how acutely young people (2nd graders, in this case) sense things that do not belong. A mystery bike turned up in the playground and they were just, I don’t know, incensed that there was something in the playground that did not belong there.

    Something tells me the necessity that things go where they belong and not be where they do not belong does not extend to their bedroom organization. But man, that there was a bike where a bike was not supposed to be just shook their world.

    The other day one of my four-year-olds told me that her scissors weren’t “scissory enough” because they weren’t cutting properly. I love my job.Report

    Some recent quotes from my two-year-old daughter:

    (1) “Daddy, your tummy is so cute. Big and cute.”

    (2) My daugher: “Mommy, I’m soooo hungry.”

    My wife (while handing my daugher an animal cracker): “Here you go, Penny. Look! Here’s a koala.”

    My daughter: “No! Penny don’t want a koala! Penny want ALL ANIMALS!”Report

    When my daughter was about three, and listing all the toys that would make her life complete, I told her that in life you can’t have everything you want, and was met with the unanswerable  “But I want everything I want.”Report
