The Non Sequitur

I’m not sure if this is a Simon thing or a little kid in general thing, but often Simon gives head-scratching answers to questions. It’s not so much that the answers are wrong or random, though both of things happen, so much as they are often in response to slightly different questions than what was asked.

Yesterday he offered up a particularly cute example of this, which will be best appreciated by those who have known me for a long time. The discussion began when Simon saw a few laundry items on the bed:

What’s this mommy? [holding up a shirt of mine]. Is this Daddy’s?

Does it look big enough for Daddy?

No, it doosen’t. Is it mine?

Does it look big enough for you?

No, my clothes are little.

That’s right. Your clothes are little. What about Daddy’s clothes?

Daddy’s clothes are big.

Yup. Daddy’s clothes are big. And Mommy’s? What about my clothes? [I’m expecting to hear “medium” at this juncture, Goldilocks style.]

Your clothes are black.

Not what I was going for, but nonetheless true. I’m an olive skinned woman, what else would I wear?
