Out of the Mouth of....

Keagan is a TALKER.  Given the chance, this kid could talk for hours about his thing or that. 

Well, one morning a few days ago, My boys and I were eating breakfast and Keagan said some pretty entertaining things that I want to document.

Keagan was eating Captain Crunch Berries for breakfast when he paused for a moment then pointed to one of the berries and this is the conversation that followed:

K- Mom, this is like a ball.
Me - Yes, it is.
K - Can you juggle it.
Me - No, you don't juggle your cereal, but some people can juggle other things. 
K - Does Bella's (his cousin) Daddy, Alma (my brother), juggle things.
Me - Yes, I think he can.
K - Yea, I know that he is GREAT at juggling things.

A few minutes later, while still eating the same thing this is what ensued:

K - Mom, can we eat fish.
Me - Well, yes, you can eat fish that you buy at the store.
K - pauses for a moment then said "No, Mom, you don't get fish at the store, you go to a campsite that has water and you put your fishing pole in the water and when it does this (jerks with his arm) you reel it in like this (pretending he is reeling it in)."

At that point, I just had to nod my head, look away laugh to myself and then go call Andrew as soon as I could escape to tell him what Keagan had just said.

By the way...Here is a picture of Keagan on his last day of preschool last week.  He was in a hurry to go in so I had a hard time getting a picture of him.  The Child Development classes at the High School in our area does a 4 week preschool in the fall and spring.  This is the first year that I had heard about it, so we enrolled Keagan.  He really loved it and had a great time.
