3 year old logic

S has taken to using a spray bottle to clean parts of the house. Yesterday he sprayed down both bathrooms and was very proud of himself for helping out. We got home last night and I was sitting in my room.
*spraying sound from kitchen*
Me: what are you doing?
S: nothing!
Me: I don't believe that
S: me either!

I stopped yelling, I was laughing too hard.

Notes on a bike ride

  • You can swallow a bug quickly and tastelessly.
  • Most drivers are very courteous.
  • Radnor lake is no longer frozen over (it was last time I ran there).

S: Okay. That way her not freeze

We have just started the dreaded why phase. Last night we went out and got a Christmas tree.
S: "Mommy, what that man doing my Christmas tree?"
Me: "Cutting off the bottom so it can get water."
S: "Why?"
Me: "So the needles don't fall off."
S: "Why?"
Me: "Because I don't want needles all over the floor."
S: "Why?"
Me: .....
