Converstation with a 6 year old

January 28, 2010

I sat with Maya on the steps eating an ice block this afternoon.  This is our conversation…

Maya: um Sarah
Me: yea
Maya: Um, can I ask you a question?
Me: Yep
Maya: when do you meet someone?
Me: huh?
Maya: I mean when will you meet the boy that you will get married to?
Me: Um, dunno
Maya: where?
Me: Your guess is as good as mine
Maya: how?
Me: well I guess I’ll be friends with a guy for a while and then we will decide that we like each other enough
Maya: Oh. I thought that you like went to a thing at church and there were lots of people there and you picked someone that you liked.
Me: Hmmm. No.
Maya: Oh.
Me: You might like how someone looks like on the outside but it’s not till you are friends with them till you know what they are like on the inside. Some people aren’t so nice on the inside.
Maya: I know some boys that are nice on the outside.
Me: really? who?
Maya: oh two boys actaully on the TV.
Me: hmm
Maya: I can’t remember his name. You know the one on the CD that we’ve got.
Me: um…
Maya: does this juice stain? These are my best pants.

The End.
