Our new house is the first with a kitchen island. Very convenient for us parents, not so much for our six-year-old because he can’t yet reach completely across its top.

This morning Mommy asked where he had put his shoes the day before. He said they were on top of the mountain. Mommy was bewildered, then asked, “Do you mean the island?” He replied, “No, on top of the mountain”. Mommy then clarified, “Do you mean the island in the middle of the kitchen?”

He figured it out then, frustrated, said, “Yes, the island. Whatever.”

Even if they don’t have you rolling over laughing, kids still say the darndest things!
