In Which a Six Year-Old Says the Darndest Things

Several days ago, he asked if I remembered the book we had read about the people in the little house.  I thought of the picture book with the house that, as the family grows, is too small, so they start adding on to the house.  J was thinking of the same book.  No, O said, not that one.  I asked if he remembered what it was called.  No.  Did he remember what happens to the people in the story?  No.  I asked what the pictures looked like.  Black and white drawings, he said.  There were two little girls, and they had a dog.

Oh, that book about the Little House.  The Little House on the Prairie.  Duh.

So we’re reading that again.

And then last week, O was playing working with the calculator.  He looked up, made sure he had all our attention, and said, "According to my calculations, half of infinity is six percent."
