Duh moment #243

Ella and I were discussing the progress of our veggie patch project (in English as we had an English speaking guest):

Me – It will be so exciting to see the veggies appear on the plants, won’t it?
Ella – Disappear.
Me – No, appear.
Ella – No, disappear.
Me – Appear. Disappear means to go away. Appear means we can start seeing them.
Ella – Appear is not a real word!
Me – Yes it is, miss dictionary. Do you want me to go get the dictionary?
Ella – What’s a dictionary?
Me – “Woordenboek” (Dutch translation)
Ella – I can’t read.

Duh.

    ha ha ha ha – she has you there!Apparently kids don't really "get" sarcasm until they are about 10 – I can assure you in practical trials a 9.75 will get sarcasm quite well (and throw it back at you)!!
