Conversations with a Four Year Old

Me: I'm just saying...

The Husband: I know, I was being a dick.

Brynna: You shouldn't say "dick" daddy.

TH: Look of horror. You're right. I shouldn't say that word.

Brynna: Because it's not nice to make fun of people.

TH: Who am I making fun of?

Brynna: Granddaddy. His name is Dick.

TH: Well, actually...

Jessi: That's right, Daddy was making fun of Granddaddy and that's not very nice. Thank you Brynna.


Jessi: Look, Brynna, we're in line behind Andrew.

Brynna: Oh, cool. Say "hi" for me.

Jessi: Okay Waits for Andrew to get out of his car. In the meantime, teacher comes to our car.

Brynna: I'm not getting out because you didn't say hi to Andrew for me.

Jessi: But, if you get out right now, you can say hi to him yourself.

Brynna: Oooh! Love you mommy, bye.


Brynna: I need a jacket.

Jessi: I know it's chilly right now, but it's going to get hot and then you'll be stuck dragging around a jacket all day. Are you sure that's what you want?

Brynna: I'm cold and I'm going to turn into a Popsicle if I don't get a jacket.

Jessi: Okay, okay, I'll get you a jacket. Wait here.

Brynna: Noooo. It's cold out here and I'll turn into a Popsicle and my lunch will turn into a Popsicle and then I won't be able to eat it.

Jessi: It's fine. You'll be fine.

Brynna: Noooooo.

Jessi: Okay, come in the kitchen, but don't go past the kitchen.

Brynna: Okay.

Jessi: goes to get jacket, returns Why are you in the living room playing with toys when I specifically said not to go past the kitchen?

Brynna: But I'm ready. Let's go. Oh, is that the jacket you want me to wear?

Jessi: Yes, why?

Brynna: It's kinda warm. It's gonna get hot today and then I'll be stuck dragging around that super-warmy jacket all day.

Jessi: Yes, yes you will.

Ha, ha, and ha. I love hearing your funny Montessori parent stories--a different perspective. I want to visit her school sometime.
