First posted June 2005. Lydia's first blog name was Crayons.
1. Crayons, age 4, perusing an alphabet place mat: How come the O is HERE but not HERE? The alphabet goes H, I, J, K, L O MEN O P.
Mama Squirrel: I know that's how it sounds, but really it's L, M, N, O, P (pointing to the letters).
Crayons: No, it's L O MEN O P.
Mama Squirrel: I know that's how it sounds, but the O really goes here. That's just where people put it in the alphabet.
Crayons: Well, we could cut it! (referring to the place mat)
2. Crayons (playing kitchen): Would you like some goose jam?
Mama Squirrel: Do you mean gooseberry jam?
Crayons: No, goose jam. It's what gooses put on their bagels.
