Their Logic is Astounding.

"K' boys! Movie's over! Time to turn the TV... JACOB!"


"Jacob what are you doing!? Your face is covered in marker!"

"Huh?"


"Yup. It is."

"Oh Jacob, where did you find that marker? Is it ours? I don't recognize it! Were you coloring on something else? You better not have been! Why is it in here? Why is the lid off?

"Umm, because it is. See?"


"Oh, I see alright. But why is it all over your face?"

"Because it is!"

Have you ever noticed how adults use about ten times more words and aren't nearly as logical as kids are?

I wish I had his gift for straightforward answers.

OH JOY!! My daughter cut her hair today...again! She did the same thing last year and it was just beginning to look normal again!

Kristina P. said...

I hope Magic Eraser works for that!

Sue said...

Looks like he read my recent post; namely, "It is what it is."

Quite a precocious child you have there!

;)

Garden of Egan said...

OK, that picture is worthy of saving for his dates. Hahahaha!

Wow, you really don't ever have any boredom!

You poor thing. I need to come and rescue you. I can do dishes and laundry.

I also can color on the walls Jacob.

I have a post on my blog from last summer I think about a purple marker and the 2 littles...they LOVE to find a stray marker.

Braden said...

You just have to stop asking such silly questions.

Mother Smith said...

Ah...it is all coming "full circle"...I don't think you will remember the HALLWAY WALL near our kitchen in Lynndyl, Utah...but...it would have made Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci's frescos look "dull" and "unimaginative" compared to what YOU CHILDREN did to that wall...I would get ONE of you...broken from the habit...then, came the next one...We had to PAINT over it...to clean up all you "artists's" creations in our home...If I had been smart...maybe I could have made a fortune...and given the NEW WORLD something to REMEMBER...and Da Vinci's or Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni works would no longer have value...(smile)

One Cluttered Brain said...

It's all been said already.
But cute kid.
My daughter LOVES to give herself marker "tattoos" too.
SIGH.

Krista said...

You know, sometimes us grown ups do silly things that we have no explanation for either. :D

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Look at him! He turned all "feen!" WOW!!! Gotta love kids...too bad we can't use the magic eraser on them!

Saimi said...

Love the twinkle in his eye! Maybe he wants to be feen!

Jackie said...

Straightforward, yet so vague! :)

M-Cat said...

LOL - my oldest once colored himself, my walls, my couch, my bed AND the cat in black marker. I was just trying to take a quick shower....

Lindzena said...

I wish more people accepted those answers!! I give them all the time, but usually just get odd looks...

Amy said...

That is so funny!! Great post.
Thanks for commenting on Letters to Lizzie! It's always great to make new bloggy friends.
BTW, your blog is ADORABLE!

Pearl said...

your kids are adorable and your pictures are fabulous! too bad life can't be that simple as adults...

Lisa said...

Holy junk, that is funny! Oh, man, can't say I really MISS that, but I'm glad you let me laugh vicariously about your life.

Laura, Ben, and family said...

That's awesome! :-) Kids are great!

The other day I was angry and told my son, "you don't get everything you want."

"But I want everything I want mom."

Crap. They are so smart. Enjoy your green son!

The Damsel In DisDress said...

Can I just say.
I love your blog.
I love the pictures of your kids.
I love it all, even when you tell about used pull-ups.
love...

Charlotte said...

The logic of a child is rather stunning. No matter how well I hide the markers, they still manage to get found. I have pictures of my children last year looking like they ate an entire tribe of smurfs.

See Mom Smile said...

And all they are actually hearing is "blah, blah blah, blah." At least that is what my husband says.
