Kids Say (courtesy of my neighbor’s 5-year-old grandson)

"Why do you have those [crutches]?" ("Just to walk with," I say.) "Oh! Okay!"
"Can I see inside of your apartment? Wow! It’s so cool!"
"Guess what? I have my own cell phone. I’m five and a half and I can already text!"
"Do you know what the best game is? Minecraft. Do you HAVE Minecraft? Do you have a computer? Do you know how to spell Minecraft and creative? That’s how you find it."
"Are those [crutches] glued on to you?" (I set them down and assure him that I am just hanging onto them.) "Oh," he says, sounding relieved.
