Acid Warts

Tonight I was reading The Gruffalo to Ben and Noah. At the part, He has knobbly knees, and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose, Ben stopped me and said, “What is a wart?”

I said, “Uh, it’s a little bump that can grow on your skin….. but they’re not poisonous.”

“Yeah,” he agreed, immediately and very seriously adding, “My warts can shoot acid.”  Then he waited for me to continue reading.  I had to find out more about these acid shooting warts.  He was about to say they were on his nose, but changed his mind.  They are around his mouth.

    Kids are so funny. where do they come up with this stuff. A couple of days ago Joshua wanted to know where his ‘independix’ was because he thought it was hurting…I told him to look it up in the table of ‘continents’ (another one of his words)
    We just had a bout with the flu and he was worried he had diabetes. They had just studied that in school.

    Isn’t that funny? He not only accepted what a wart was in one breath, before he was making up a variation of it in the next!! I love preschoolers!
