Cute Kid Story

Toddlers (2-4 yrs.) have a very strange view of the world. I'm not sure if it's their height or lack of experience, but they just look at things differently than you or me or even a 6 yr. old.

The other day, the family was all sitting around the coffee table doing something. Charles and Elise were bickering about the rules of some game they had made up.

"You can't do that, it has to move like this." Charles complained as Elise violated the laws of child physics, which is pretty hard to do.

"Nuh, uh Chawools. I know I can do it."

"How do you know?"

"I know everything."

"Oh yeah? Well how did the dinosaurs die?" Charles asked knowing he had her stumped. Charles learned in 5 yr. old kindergarten that no one really knows how the dinosaurs died, so this is his trick question to prove every one's ignorance.

"Like this Chawools?"

I looked over at this point, because I didn't understand her answer. Elise was laying down on her side with her eyes closed and arms and legs slightly sprawled in a very convincing dead dinosaur pose.

Charles rolled his eyes and Corinne and I laughed our asses off. She really did know everything.
