Wot so funee - A logical conclusion?
We are joining in with Actually Mummy's fab Wot so Funee bloghop once again...
Daniel has enjoyed me reading a bedtime story with him lately (which for a while sadly we got out of the habit of doing as he became better at reading by himself whilst mummy breastfed Trinity). He also likes brushing my hair as he says that if he decides not to be a chef, then he'll be a hairdresser. So after we read Anne Fine's 'Return of the Killer Cat' (which we had to buy a copy of as somehow out of the zillions of books we always borrow from the library - the kids have managed to lose this one for months and I don't think we'll be able to renew again so have had to buy a replacement), Daniel gets my hairbrush and starts to brush my hair.
'Ouch' I yelp as he tries to brush out a tangle. 'Be careful with my scalp'.
Daniel: 'What's your scalp mummy?'
Mummy: 'It's the skin on my head where my hair sticks onto. Well actually my hair grows out of hair follicles and hair follicles can be found on your arms and legs too. But obviously your hair on your arms doesn't grow long like the hair on your head.'
Daniel: 'Well, that is because you don't drink water through your arms of course.'
Mummy (looking confused): 'What's it got to do with water?'
Daniel: 'Well you drink water through your mouth, which is part of your head, so that's why the hair on your head grows longer because it gets more water'.
I can see his logic - he must be trying to make sense of it in the same way that plants need water to grow - but it was hilarious.
He was also very cute in calling a pickled onion a 'freckled' onion!
