Kids Say the Funniest Things

This happened yesterday...

Ruthie (5 years): "Hi Mom!  I just got back from California."

Me: "Oh, what were you doing in California?"

Ruthie: "Looking at dragons.  Can we get a dragon?"

Me: "I don't think we have room for a dragon."

Ruthie: "It can live with the goats.  This dragon is nice to goats."
We don't have goats yet, just plans for goats.

Me: "I don't think there is room for dragon and goats." Dragons are really big, right?...like dinosaurs.

Ruthie: "Yeah there is. Dragons are only this big."  Ruthie goes over to the growth chart and holds up her hands by the one-and-a-half foot mark.

Me: "Oh.  What will the dragon eat?"

Ruthie: "I ordered dragon food.  Oh look!  There it is!" Ruthie runs outside to get the dragon food from the mailbox.

I guess you CAN order anything through the internet!

Me: "I think we should ask Daddy when he gets home."

Ruthie: "OK.  They are coming tonight."

Me: "We haven't asked Daddy yet!"

Ruthie: "Let's call Daddy and ask him!"

Me: "No, we'll just wait until he gets home."  We don't need to call him at work to ask about a pretend dragon.

Of course, Daddy says yes...who wouldn't say yes to a small, pretend dragon!
Oh yeah, the dragon is blue, dark blue.
