At Sam’s Deli Diner on Saturday, Jillian (our 4 year old neighbor) asked Joelle why she had grilled cheese. I knew that Jillian really meant, “why did you order grill cheese,” but that 4 year old conversationalists can’t always express themselves that eloquently. Joelle retorted back, “that’s what I ordered,” with a quizzical look on her face. Jillian also looked confused. I held back laughter and gently told Joelle that maybe she was asking why she ordered it. She just said, “oh, I like it.” 4 year old conversations…. they are very literal

Oh, Joelle’s new word this week: Brilliant. When I asked her where she learned it, she said, “Madonna.”
