Conversation with a 5-Year-Old

Posted by JoAnn on July 9, 2009

I took Oedipus the pug to the park today. There were a variety of dogs there with their owners: a jack russell, cocker spaniel, lab/pitbull mix puppy, poodle, another pug and a few mutts. There was also a little 5-year-old girl who hangs out at the park with her grandpa every now and then to play with all the dogs.

The following is a conversation that took place between me and that little girl today.

Girl:  I have a game on Nintendo DS where I take care of dogs.

Me:  How many dogs do you take care of?

Girl:  Do you know Chloe?

Me:  Who’s Chloe?

Girl:  Chloe is Paco’s girlfriend.

Me:  Who’s Paco?

Girl:  Paco is Chloe’s boyfriend.

Me:  But who’s Chloe?

Girl:  Chloe is Paco’s girlfriend.

*I scratch my head as I can see where this is going*

Me:  So who is Paco?

*Little girl throws hands on hips in frustration*

Girl:  Paco is Chloe’s boyrfriend! I already told you!

Me:  But who is Chloe?

Girl:  She’s Paco’s girlfriend!

Me:  Is Chloe a dog?

Girl:  Yes!

Me:  On your Nintendo DS?

Girl:  Of Course.

Me:  Got it.

I love the logic and line of thought of a 5-Year-Old mind.
