From the mouths of babes

Yesterday the neighbor caught me in the driveway as I started to take Noah to karate.

Neighbor: "Doug is Noah home? Beth (a first grader) is over an hour late."
Dad: "Noah is in the car."
Neighbor: "Noah, did Lisa (Beth’s mother) pickup Beth?"
Noah, 10 years: "No."
Dad: "Did Beth ride the bus home with you?"
Noah: "Yes."
Dad: "Did she walk home with you?"
Noah: "Yes."
Dad: "Do you know where she is?"
Noah: "No, her mom took her somewhere."

  1. Well technically, her mother did not pick her up because she took the bus. She travelled with her mother later.

  2. Noah is beyond a shadow of a doubt the most literal person in the world.
