Out of the Mouth of Babes

So youngest granddaughter was here at the beginning of the month.  She is a joy to have around by the way.  She lives in Buffalo now.

Anyway not sure where she learned to be so good at the quick retort.  She sounds like she's a teen not two and a half.

Here are two gems.  Both with Dan who is Papa.

Papa: Granddaughter where are your shoes?
Response: where is your hair?

Now you can see from the photo below that Dan is bald.  He's not completely bald but he got tired of the little hair he had on the sides and retired me as his barber of 46 years.  He started shaving off the rest in the fall.  Don't know why granddaughter just noticed but her response was so quick we had to laugh.

When granddaughter visits she knows where to find the toys.  She loves to get them out to play and they get scattered quickly.  Here's another zinger.

Papa: Granddaughter don't throw your toys around?
Response: They're not my toys!

She's correct of course.  They aren't her toys but for her to come up with that quick retort floored us.
