Conversations with little people

Mom: What do you want to be when you grow up, Grace?

Grace:  I'm going to be a lifeguard!

Mom: You know that lifeguards have to put their faces in the water and get their hair wet, don't you?

Grace: (after a long silence absorbing this piece of information)  Then I want to be a ballerina teacher.   They are beautiful and so am I.


 Mom:  Grant, that is so nice how you're petting Jet.  He likes it when you pat him nicely.

Grant:  He's purring.  Yeah, he likes me a lot.

Mom:  Remember not to pick him up anymore, OK?

Grant:  OK, Mom.  What would it be like if we ate cat poop?

Mom: (a little surprised by this turn in the conversation) I don't think that would taste very good, honey.

Grant:  Yeah, but what if we dipped it in ketchup before we ate it?

Mom: No, I still don't think it would taste very good.

Grant:  Would we die if we ate cat poop?

Mom: No, I don't think you would die.  I think your tummy would hurt.

Grant:  What if we dipped it in ketchup?

Mom: Your tummy?

Grant: What if we dipped the cat poop in ketchup?  Would we die then?

Mom:  No.  Now no more talk about poop.

Grant:  Mom, I love you. (seriously he said this)

What is left to say at that point???
