He's What?


Eleanor: Mommy, do you think Diamond is Chinese?

Me: Um, I don't think so honey, why do you ask?

Eleanor: Well, he's got that little white thing on his nose.

Me: Mm-hmm.

Eleanor: And he's black.

Um. I can see we're going to have to review the Kindergarten Social Studies Curriculum with Mrs. E. at some point fairly soon.

Comments:
rofl! Kids say such interesting things :)
 
Curiouser and curiouser. I wonder how kids think some of these things up! too funny! :)
 
tres cool chinese cat. wonder if s/he likes eggroll? hee.
Biiiig hug to Lady Eleanor...
 
you never know where that stuff comes from. There are so many influences at school that are not teachers. I try to ask the kid questions that will get her thinking in better ways about that stuff. she's clearly thinking, which is a good thing.

That kitten is ADORABLE.
 
Wait till she asks you about the "little fuzzy ball thingies" hanging underneath his tail.

Just a heads-up (or a tails-up, as it were...) on what gets brought up at the kindergarten lunch table...

You want I should send you a case of Kleenex? A rifle, maybe? A copy of the "boyfriend quiz" my husband has already entered into its fifth round of editing and appending?
 
I always thought my cat looked like a New Yorker because he's orange.
???
I love what kids come up with.
 
Maybe she meant because he's got black hair?
 
Ohohoh! When I was a kid, I asked my dad why there weren't more kids in our family.

"Well, we thought it might be hard to raise a Chinese kid," he explained. "We don't know very much about their culture."

"Why would another kid be Chinese?" I asked him.

"Well, everything third child born in the world is Chinese. You were the second. See?"
