Kids say the funniest things!?!

Chick is an absolute character who makes me giggle with some of her thoughts and conversations.  For instance on Saturday afternoon we were driving in the car and had the following conversation:

Chick:  Mum, why is that man sitting on the floor?

Me:  I'm not sure Boo.  Maybe he's feels ill....perhaps he's sick or dizzy.

Chick:  Maybe he has afternoonitis!

Me: Er.....what?

Chick:  Afternoonitis.  It's the thing that Miss Waldron says I have in the afternoon when I'm not doing any work!!!!!!!!

............................................................................

In the car on the way to school this morning, talking about the 2 minutes she managed to catch of a certain soap last night:

Chick:  Mum, you know that girl last night on t.v?  The teenage one who got pregnant?

Me:  Yes

Chick:  How did she get pregnant when she's only a teenager and not married?

Me:  erm.....cough, splutter (trying to think verrrrry quickly).....erm......

Chick:  Did she manage it the same way you and Dad did when you weren't married?

Me:  erm.....cough, splutter (trying to think verrrrry quickly).....erm......Sideways glance at Chick!

Chick:  Let me guess?  You'll tell me when I'm older?

Me:  Frantically nodding and trying not to wet myself laughing!!!!!!

Chick constantly amazes me with her astuteness and her understanding of the world around her.  The older she gets the more I want to wrap her in cotton wool and keep her innocence!  Oh well......lets hope I can just keep her away from boys until she's about 17!!!!!
