Conversations With a Four Year Old

I was taking the baby to a doctor appointment today, and as we drove by a very busy intersection (410 and Bandera for you San Antonio folks) Lauryn cried out in her very incredulous voice:

I didn't know there were two of them! One by our house and one far, far away!

Me: What are you talking about, Lauryn? The HEB?

Lauryn: No, that thing, you know, that's by our house? There was another one back there!

Hailey starts suggesting anything she can think of near our house. I am racking my brain, trying to remember what is at that intersection.

Me: Lauryn, do you mean Panda Express?

L: YES!!! There's ours by our house, and a second one up here!

I just laughed and informed the poor child that there were many, many Panda Expresses all over town. I think it was an epiphany for her to realize that there more than one of some things. I wish I had a microphone to record her incredulous tone of voice.

LOL! That reminds me of when I had my 10 year old sister with me when I lived in Indianapolis. After seeing a second Kroger store she said, "How many grocery stores do they have in this town?!?"

You must have come from a VERY small town. Even the town I grew up in had a few grocery stores. :-)
