Out of the Mouths of Babes ~ Hopeless

posted in: Kiddo Talk | 1

Kids are so cute! They just don’t understand why some things exist.

 

For example, why are there white crayons if you can’t even write on white paper with them? They don’t show up! In my 6 year olds mind this makes no sense at all.

 

He was sitting at the table coloring a few days ago and I randomly overheard him sigh and say “uhhh, white is such a hopeless color!”

 

At first I was like “what does that mean?” I thought we were going to have explain the meaning of race to a child. But then he explained.

 

He was just so frustrated that the white crayon wasn’t showing up on his paper.

 

Very understandable for a kid. I just wish my problems were that trivial.

 

Oh to be six again.

    You know, I never really thought about it like that, but your son has a point! Too cute.
