It's Official!

Here are a few conversations I've had with Simon lately. He's officially smarter than me, I think. :)

He comes into the kitchen the other day...

Simon: "Mom, can I have some juice, s'il vous plaît?"

Me: What?

Simon: repeats himself and says, "s'il vous plaît means 'please' in French."

Me: What?! When did you learn how to say please in French?

Simon: Oh, I learned it from Noddy. (A show on Sprout)

Me: How do you say it again...sill voo plah?

Simon: No, it's sill voo pleh. Pleh, Mom.

Me: Oh, okay. (Wow, I think to myself. Wow!)

We were leaving the library on Tuesday.

Simon went skipping ahead and I said, "Simon, stop at the lines."

He looks at me and says, "Actually Mom, it's called a 'crosswalk'."

"Okay Simon, just stop there please."

Simon comes into the living room on Monday and says, "Mom, do you know what 'unflappable' means?"

Me: "Um, no."

Simon: "Well, it means that you don't something upset you."

Me: "Well, that makes sense."

Gotta love Pinky Dinky Doo. She's one smart little girl. :)

It is a very sobering moment when we realize our children are becoming smarter then us. I just figure with each placenta I have delivered a portion of my brain came out with it. That at least helps me justify the numorous brain farts I have per day!!
