The adorableness of a child’s logic…

So the other day, my mom directed my attention to this ridiculously adorable moment on this author’s Facebook page that she follows…the conversation went as follows…

Breeana Puttroff:
My daughter, finder of plot holes at age five:

Little Goose: “I’m thinking of putting Lilly in a class where she can learn how to speak.” (Lilly is her favorite stuffed animal dog.)
Me: “That sounds like fun. Is Martha Speaks going to be the teacher?”
LG: “Mom, Martha Speaks is not real.”
Me: “Oh. Okay.” (Still *trying* to play along.) “Are they going to eat alphabet soup?” (Alphabet soup is how Martha on the show becomes a talking dog.)
LG: “Alphabet soup is not real.”
Me: “Yes it is.”
LG: “I mean, it’s not alive.” (There’s a “duh” sound in her voice at this point.)
Me: “Well, no soup is alive.”
LG: (exasperated sigh) “I MEAN, since it’s not alive, it can’t travel to Lilly’s brain and make her speak.”
Me: “Oh.” (Of course. How could I be so obtuse?)
LG: “And if it DID travel to her brain, it would be stuck there, and then, because it’s soup, it would get rotten up there, and she would die.”

And there you have it…a moment of adorableness in a child’s logic…
In the meantime, I am hard at work on finishing the interviews with Kelsey and Derek, and hopefully they will be up within the next week. 🙂
I am also doing so much brain storming and planning ahead for my April Camp NaNoWriMo next month!!! EEEEHHHH!!!! I’m so excited!!! I’m really hoping they will post some word count widgets so I can post one on here. In the meantime, I have a link set up in the sidebar if you’d like to check out my novel I’ll be working on. Right now, all there is to see is the synopsis, but as soon as April starts, I will be posting an excerpt to see as well. I feel like this will be a successful attempt for my novel-finally!! 😀 I can’t wait to see that finished manuscript, and be that much closer to publishing it! And then writing and finishing the sequel this summer! AHH!! I think this is going to be a great year for my writing. 🙂

     Always thankful for any and all readers (of blog or stories)!
