Here are some of my nine year old's recent thoughts.
The TV: "What's in your wallet?"
My son: "I don't have a wallet!"
The Backstory: My son, his brother and their dad are at a local drugstore buying candy (of all things) after a trip to the video store. While checking out, my son notices the twenty-something cashier's name tag.
My son: "Oh your name is Ashley!*
The cashier: "Yes it is."
My son: "My phone number is 555-4321*
His dad: "She's too old for you."
Everyone else: laughter.
On the Future:
My son: When I grow older, I'll get bigger, go to high school and then to college.
*Changed the name and phone number.
