We all know that kids can't sit still without any form of entertainment. While waiting to be seated in our favorite restaurant, I took the opportunity to review my 3-year old's familiarity with colors.
Me: "Nemo, what is the color of my shirt?"
Nemo: "Brown" (Correct!)
Me: "What color is your shirt?"
Nemo: "Pink!" (Right!)
Me: "What color are my shoes?"
Nemo: "Black" (Exactamento!)
Me: "How about your hair?"
Nemo: "Light brown!" (She distinguishes light and dark colors at three)
Me: "Your bag?"
Nemo: "Red!!" (Yup, yup!!)
Me: "How about Tita Myla's teeth?" (My cousin flashed her sweetest smile)
I've never seen a smile fade that fast. The transformation was amazing. The next thing I know, my cousin was blushing like anything. Her face was so red!
It took us a few seconds in silence before we all started laughing.
Indeed, kids say the darndest things(and yes, they do not lie). ;)
