A Note on Toddler Wisdom

Okay, so the British Bulldog reference got everyone a little off kilter. Wizard and Jensen, British Bulldog is a game where one person is in the middle and tries to tackle people as they go back and forth across the "field". When one person is tackled they join the other person in the middle and attempt to tackle others. Eventually the entire school is in the middle and two or three speedy youngsters try to make their way through to the other side. Jamie Loveland and I were usually the last ones to be tackled.

I hope this clarifies things.

As for today's bit of wisdom, I offer up this little gem.

The Wife notices that Touchdown is wearing only one sock.

The Wife: "Touchdown, where is your other sock?"

Touchdown: "Up on the counter."

The Wife: "Don't you want to put it on?"

Touchdown: "No."

The Wife: "Why not?"

Touchdown: "That foot's not cold."

The Wife: "But you're wearing a sock on that other foot."

Touchdown, looking at the socked foot: "It was cold."

The Wife: "But this one's not?"

Touchdown: "Nope."

As I look out there now, she is still in one sock.

My son does the same thing. Every day after school he comes home, takes off his shoes and the one sock. Weird.

too funny! Someone else just told me their child does the same thing - - one sock on, one sock off. Sounds like this is a common "quirk".

Cute :)

I don't think she realizes that there are other reasons for wearing socks.

You got some "splaning" to do.

You just can't argue with logic like that ... can you? It's nice to know that you've got one who's going to confound you in to old age!

You definitely have to admire the logic and the efficient use of resources. We could all learn a lot from our little ones, couldn't we.

You can't argue with that kind of logic. Do you have 'hot spots' and 'cold spots' in your house that we should be aware of?
