It's All About Perception

One of the buzz phrases around our home right now has reminded me how literally children translate the English language. There has been much talk about how Mommy needs to 'cook' or 'bake' Baby Anna a little bit longer before her arrival. This is a conversation that took place just this evening.

'Mommy, is Baby Anna done cooking yet?' asked Thomas.

'No, Buddy, she still needs a little bit longer.'

'Well, I sure wish she was done being cooked,' he replied.

'Oh, meeeee toooo, Buddy. Me, too.'

And then, with the utmost love and innocence in his eyes, 'Well, why don't you just get in the oven with her and make it really hot and get her done cooked?' he inquired.
