curly q

Lately I've been getting a lot of questions about where Grace gets her curly hair.  Which is strange to me, because I would think it should be quite obvious.  I've been wearing my hair straight more often because after four babies it just isn't the same as it used to be, but seriously, anyone who has known me for any length of time is guaranteed to have seen me wear my hair curly.  So I decided to ask Grace where she thinks her curly hair came from.

Me:  Gracie, where did you get your curly hair?

Grace:  From combing it.

Me:  No, combing our hair doesn't make it curly.  I mean how come your hair is curly.  Who gave you your curly hair?  Did I give you your curly hair?

Grace:  No.

Me:  Yes I did!  Mommy has curly hair.

Grace:  No you don't.

Me:  Yes I do!

Grace:  No you don't.

Me:  OK.  So when did you get your curly hair?

Grace:  When you were in my belly, I gave you your curly hair, and when I was in your belly you gave me my curly hair!  (she is a little confused about this, and keeps telling me that we were in each others bellies)

Me:  No, when you were in my belly, I gave you your curly hair.  Mommy wasn't in your belly.

Grace:  Yes, you were.

Me:  No, I wasn't.

Grace:  Yes, you were.

Me:  When was I in your belly?

Grace:  Six years ago when we were on vacation with grandma.

Me:  OK.

Sometimes, actually most of the time these days, its just not worth arguing with her.

Isn't it fun to see how kids see the world and analyze it?
By the way, sorry we didn't get to catch up on Sunday. We just took the sacrament and then drove to AZ. Another time though!
