Teagan and Zach are playing in Teagan's room. Teagan comes running out with a pout on her face. "Mommy! Zach said, 'Talk to the hand.'" Riiiiight. *** Yesterday, Teagan announced that she knows everything. So we took advantage of her omniscience. Q: How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? A: None because he doesn't have any responsibility. Q: What is the answer to the universal question? A: If you don't have hands and don't have a steering wheel, you can't drive the car. Q: How big is the world? A: Very, very, very big. This big (holds out arms). It's VERY big but if there was no streets, it would be smaller. Q: What's the meaning of life? A: Growing popcorn out of a tree. Q: What is God's purpose for all of us? A: He's very sad and we can help him. Q: Why does the caged bird sing? A: Because he needs help! Q: How much does gas cost? A: 38 *** I think Zach may have dreams of becoming some sort of escape artist when he's older. I went to check on him at bedtime the other night and found this... ***

Maybe Zach is practicing nudism.

T's answers were very funny, very cute. Reminds me of Bill Cosby to children type conversations. You should ask her a few questions each week. Maybe an "Ask Teagan" section of the blog. :-)

That would be fun, Garret!! At least for as long as she knows everything.

Ya'll should provide me questions to ask her!

Garret said...


Why is the sky blue?

Why do girls have long hair?

Why are animals furry?

What's a tongue for?

Why can't monkey's fly?

Sounds like Teagen has proven her point.

As for Zach - watch out for continued development on this. My first two kids squirmed out of their diapers on a regular basis, and decorated their cribs a few times. Not fun. We had to be very creative with sleepwear in order to keep them contained and yet comfortable.

Teagan's answers are classic. I'm too sleepy today to think of any good questions...other than, "How does the dishwasher know to break down right when we've cleaned out the fridge before going out of town?"

Q: What's the meaning of life?
A: Growing popcorn out of a tree."


PS: Garret, keep your damn tongue questions to yourself, man.

Garret said...

Well Alix, I would expect the reply to be "to stick out at Alix".

Eternal Lizdom said...

The funny thing is that T had just asked me the ohter day how her tongue works.

I used some of your questions, G. Stay tuned for her answers!


Tom- My husband read your comment and turns to me and says, "Oh yeah. I forgot to tell you about that. He pulled off his diaper, just stepped right out of it and walked into the living room and handed it to me. Great."
