As my child gets older, I find more and more circumstances where I have absolutely no response to some of the things that come out of her mouth. I can't tell sometimes if she is brilliant, or if I need to sit down and have a talk with her. This parenting gig just gets trickier and trickier as time goes on.

This gem is from last night:

Amanda: "Mom, I know something that's a color!"

Me: "Really, Amanda, what's that?"

Amanda: "An ORANGE!"

Me: "Wow, you're right. Very good, Amanda."

***five second pause***

Amanda: "Mommy, I know something ELSE that's a color!"

Me: "What?"

Amanda: "James Brown."
