don’t try to out-weird the 5 year old

My parents here, my nieces (their grandkids Sissy 5 and Peanut 3) in the Tri-Cities. Skyping.

Dad: “Hey, Sissy, guess what. I cut off that toenail.”

No reaction from Sissy.

Dad: “That weird toenail that was too long. I clipped it.”

Sissy just looks at him.

Dad: “So you don’t have to bite it off like you said you would.”

Sissy: “Guess what I have in my mouth.”

Possible response 1: There’s no telling.

Possible response 2: Did you hear any of that?

Dad goes with Possible response 3 (the least safe): “Um? Ok, what.”

Sissy fishes a finger in her mouth and holds it up to the webcam.

Sissy: “A fingernail. I just bit it off. Yeah.”

Sissy puts it back in her mouth and sits back, chewing and smiling.

When you try to out-weird the 5 year old, you lose more than the contest. You lose a little bit of your sanity.
