wino



So I take the kids to our local Mexican restaurant to meet Tim for dinner.  While we are waiting and eating chips with guacamole, Emerson strikes up a conversation with a woman at the next table. This is what I hear:

WOMAN:
I love your name. So how old are you?

EMERSON:
Three but I’m gonna be five and a half soon.  I have wine in my bedroom.

SCREECH! TIME TO INTERJECT IN TO THE COVERSATION

ME:
HaHa…isn’t that funny.  Well, Emerson is kind of right.  She has two wine bottles in her room. But they are from the hospital.  When each baby is born the hospital gives a personalized label with the baby’s name and birthdate on a sparkling grape juice bottle!  Geez, I bet that sounded great.

It is amazing what children say, when they say it, in the context they say it, and why they say it.
