60 seconds in the life of The Kidling

Wednesday afternoon Alice and I had some errands to run. On our way home, she started chattering. Incessantly. I would love to spend an entire day inside her head. Since I can’t do that, I’ll share 60 seconds with you…

Alice: What’s that letter— What’s that word? In Spanish?* What’s that word in Spanish that comes after ‘tres’?

The Mama: Cuatro

Alice: Yeah, cuatro! I’m thinking in Spanish. I’m counting in Spanish and everyone’s gonna know how smart I am. Everyone’s gonna love me. Well, everyone who knows me is gonna love— Hey, that’s a white water tower! I love white water towers! If we hadn’t come I wouldn’t have seen the white water tower? Or fed those fish. I am glad we came.

* Full disclosure: Alice didn’t say Spanish. But you knew that, didn’t you? What, then, did she say?  ‘panish.  Of course.
