Maybe she's onto the next big thing

While we were driving up north on Friday, somehow the girls' conversation turned to vampires. Joel asked them if they even knew what a vampire was. Chloe confessed she didn't, but Bria said that she totally knew what they were. Joel asked her to expound, and she gave us the following definition:

"Vampires eat rotten cherries and rotten oatmeal, they have really sharp teeth and they bite people's heads off."

When asked how she knew this information she said:

"I heard it from a kid in my class at school. He saw Star Wars."

  2. Hahahaa! That's awesome.

    Some of my tween's friends have read "those" books, and I'm rather glad she has no interest in them. She's way too young.

    (Cherries and Oatmeal? And Star Wars?!!!)

  3. That is hilarious! Its like when my son and nephew of the same age (just barely 5) were having a "who's smarter contest and finally in frustration Ben asks Gabe fine, then what's 50 + 50! and Gabe answered 7!!! and Ben replied ( in great frustration) "How'd you know that?!"

  8. Too funny! Once, Mikelle asked me if there was another Mikelle Henrichsen. I said that there were people with the last name of Henrichsen, and a few Mikelle's in the world, but I would be surprised if there was another "Mikelle Henrichsen". She said, "Well, Riley (kid at school) said there was another Mikelle Henrichsen. But she lives in China."

    Alrighty then!

  11. Don't you just love who the authority is in our kids' opinions? I'm always laughing at where their ideas come from!

    I've really enjoyed reading your posts today - December has been so crazy for us that not only have I not blogged, but I haven't had time to read anyone else's blogs either. I'm so impressed with your consistency - you're as good as the Pioneer Woman about keeping up, and always having something fun to read! Thanks, too, for always commenting on my blog - it always makes me smile! And, you're right, I do have a wonderful mother (and she's already forgiven me for giving her the stomach flu).
