"Mommy, I promise never to say the S-word again" proclaimed Sophia, as we walked out to the car.
"What's the S-word?" (I was pretty sure I knew, but I was just making certain. You never know what kids are thinking, after all!)
"You know! St...oo..."
"Yes! That's the S-word, Mommy. And we shouldn't say it, right?"
"Right. It isn't a very nice word."
Later, while I was driving with Sophia and Chloe in tow...
"Mommy, I decided that movies are bad for you" proclaimed Chloe.
"Oh yeah? Why is that?"
"Because they just fill your mind up with that stuff."
"Movie stuff! Your mind just gets filled up with movies, and then there's no room for math and reading. So I decided I'm not going to watch movies anymore!"
Sophia looked at her sister as if she had grown another head and said, "You're never not going to watch movies again? Ever?"
"Well that's S-word."
