Deep Thoughts

My children have made some very illuminating observations to me over the last day or two, and I thought I’d share them with you.


“I used to think Stonehenge was in New Jersey but now I know it is in a place that snows a lot and people make a lot of snowmen.”

“6 + 6 is 11.”

“An archaeologist is a doctor who takes care of people’s hearts.”


“This rocking horse is fucking crazy.”

“When I grow up, I’m gonna go back in your belly.”

“When I’m grow up, I’m gonna chew gum.”

But Primo was quick to correct her, O, innocent, ignorant babe that she is:

“You can’t Seconda, because only daddies can chew gum.”

Sometimes I do wonder if these kids will make it through all right.
