Vocabulary Lesson


Logan, Kaia, and I were laying in bed tonight, light off, having just finished our books. We’re chatting about nothing, when, during a pause, my four year-old daughter decides to pop off with

“Penis,” she says, in a matter of fact tone.

Stunned silence.

Then Logan starts belly-laughing. “She said ‘penis,'” he manages to say, and laughs harder. After a moment I start laughing, too.

“What—” I start to say.

“Window,” she says. Followed by, “Puppy.”

My daughter: genius of the non-sequitur. She has a future as a comedian. Or a philosopher.
