If any of you have ever played Hoopla, you'll appreciate this one at a whole other level...
Today during lunch with the kiddos, Jane started talking about someone she met at a friend's house, and described him as "scary". Bodhi quickly replied to say he wasn't scary. I asked Jane why he was scary (she had no real reason...), while Bodhi tried to explain who this boy was to me.
Bodhi: Yeah, he's like older than me, but he's not a grown up.
Me: So how old is he...is he like Charlee's age? Or is he like Kyla's age? Or like Joey's age? Or like Reuben's age? (I had a few examples to work with...)
Bodhi: No, he's not like any of them.
Me: So, how old do you think he is?
Bodhi: Well, I don't know...maybe 8? or 10? Ok...Kathleen, I know! He's bigger than a bird....but smaller than a dinosaur.
Me: OH! Well.... that definitely... helps.
