As Madelyn and I are driving from store to store trying to find shoes for her graduation the next day, she strikes up this coversation:


Madelyn: Mom, you probably don’t know this, but I like to eat playdoh sometimes.

Me: Oh. Well, that’s kind of gross. But, I don’t think it will hurt you, except give you a tummy ache.

Madelyn: I think it tastes good.

Me: There were kids when I went to school that ate glue.

Madelyn: Ewwww! that’s gross. {thinking} I think I’ll just stick to playdoh, mom.
