Kids make the funniest connections in their minds. Sometimes it's a struggle (a hilarious one) to figure out how they jump from one topic of conversation to another. I wish I had written some of these conversations down.
Here's an example, though I have no idea what said child was actually thinking:
My friend was reading a book to his daughter (age three). He pointed to a giraffe and asked her what it was. She said "Microwave."
Clearly this child knows the difference between a giraffe and a microwave. What's going on here?
Probably something like this:
Giraffes are yellow.
So are bananas.
Bananas are food.
We cook food in the microwave.
