Funny Story Monday: Talking with a Child

I'd like to share one of my favorite memories of a conversation I had with a child.  I was talking to a 3rd grade boy about how he was getting along with his older sister who was pregnant and living with him.  This was our conversation:

Me:  So, how are things going with your sister living with you?

Boy:  Not good.

Me:  No?  How come?

Boy:  (with a very intense look) Because she's a bitch.

Me:  Ah, you're not supposed to say that.

Boy:  Well, it's true.

Me:  (trying not to laugh) Oh, boy.

Boy:  Please don't ever get pregnant.

Me:  Why?

Boy:  Because your husband will end up hating you.

Did I mention that we were sitting in a school library while we were having this conversation?   This kid is amazing.  If he was older, we'd be really good friends.  He made me laugh and see the world from a different perspective.  He is honest and real and a person I truly admire.


  1. I love honesty!!! Hilarious and awesome.

    1. Me, too:) This is the same kid who analyzed a dream I had about trying to free some birds that got trapped in my house. He said that my dream either meant that I was stressed out it or it had something to do with my childhood:)

  2. Third graders have just a great perspective on things.

    I'm new here. Just wandered over from Murees Dupe's blog - where was giving the Liebster Award. I'm trying to visit all the other recipients, just to say hi. Hi.
