You’re Old Poppa… {Weds Words of Wisdom}

Let Momma try, Poppa. She’s taller ’cause she’s not old like you.

Just wait ’til I’m big and you’re small!
Momma, circa 1979

I am always surprised by the wisdom accidentally spouted by children. Hence they are the source of my Wednesday Words of Wisdom again this week.

Apparently my oldest and I are not wrong. We do shrink as we get older.

I knew it!

This makes me wonder what else they are right about. Perhaps boogers are good for you and licking the garbage can in the doctors office somehow serves a purpose.


What are some of the wise/unwise things your kids have said?

Any words of wisdom anywhere? About anything? There must be something!

Come link up with Momma! or tell us in the comments section.
