More "Out of the Mouths of Babes"...

I picked my 8 year old daughter up, after school, yesterday and the following conversation ensued...
Caroline: "Mom, do you think I will be a woman of knowledge when I grow up?"
Me: (trying to stifle my giggles) "Oh, I'm sure you will, Carly. What made you think of that?"
Caroline: "I don't know. No reason. No offense, Mom, but I think my dad is a man of GREAT knowledge...and you are a woman of wonderful imagination".
Me: (no longer able to contain my laughter) "I'm not offended, Honey."
My daughter is SO intuitive and 100% accurate with this assessment of her parents. I'm thinking Caroline must, somehow, share bloodlines with Anne Shirley ("Anne of Green Gables"). Side note: I'll take the wonderful imagination over the great knowledge any day of the week!


  1. That is too sweet! I love these conversations with our little ones. My daughter is the same age as yours! =)

  2. Oh how sweet!!!! My oldest daughter's name is Caroline!

    Hope you are feeling better!


  3. What a beauty! And what an intelligent little gal, too!
    I'd take imagination over extreme intellect too.

  4. That is absolutely priceless! She seems like great company.

    Hope the codeine in helping and that you're on the mend!

  5. Priceless...she is a beauty!

  6. Children's intuition is usually pretty good. I think they understand a lot more than we think they do. I would rather have a wonderful imagination too. Your daughter is so pretty and very smart too. Have a wonderful day.
