Without Trees

This from Owen in the car the other day:

Are we in our neighborhood? And our country? Because our neighborhood is in our country, right? I know why they call it a country. Because there are trees in it. A country has trees. See? Take the trees out of our country and we're just cunts.

While I'm positive this is just a four year old taking apart words and putting them back together, I choose to believe he's just a vulgar environmentalist.

If I were you, I would have pulled the car over and laughed so hard until I cried. Then I'd have to explain what the heck I was doing and make something up that made sense.

THAT is classic. Make sure you put it in his baby book so you can tease him about it years to come!

I might have wrecked the car because I was laughing so hard.

Well since there wasn't any mention of the Heimlich I will assume your mouths were empty when that came out. Kid reasoning is wonderful.
