We had a four-year-old over yesterday, and when she got tired I started singing Mary Poppins songs out of our Walt Disney songbook.

Four-year-old: Mary Poppins is not silly.
Me: Not silly?
Four: Right.
Me: How about when she floats down from the sky with her umbrella? Is that silly?
Four: No.
Me: What about when she pulls a hat stand out of her purse. Is that silly?
Four: No.
Me: Maybe she'll be sillier when you get older.

I'm chatting with another mom on the playground. A kid runs up to me.

Kid: Red apple.
Me: Red apple . . . ?
Kid: Green apple
Me: Green apple . . . ?
Kid: Green watermelon.
Me: Green watermelon.
Kid: Purple dinosaur.
Me: Purple dinosaur.
Kid: Purple nail polish.
Me: Purple nail polish.

With a look of triumph, kid runs off.

That kid will lead a fascinating life.
