Kid’s Quote of the Day ~ “The Timer”

by Karen Ekstrom

When A Child Says Something Brilliant and Magnificent…

I Call It, “The Quote of the Day”


Situation: It’s bedtime.

Me (Grandma): “Barrett, go take a shower, brush your teeth, and get into your PJ’s.”

Barrett: “Okay, But Grandma, will you time me?”

Me (Confused): “What? Why do I need to time you?”

Barrett huffs: “Mom made a new rule. I have to stay in the shower for 3 minutes and scrub shampoo in my hair and wash it out before I can come out.”

Then, in total despair, he throws up his hands: “Can you believe that?”
