Relevant to recent events, Robert has told Sarah that tonight her story will be one he knows entitled "The Boy Who Cried Wolf"...

Robert: And I will make it special! and modern! And cool!

Sarah: Please don't, Daddy.

Polygon Wombat

At dinner tonight we were discussing what Sarah learned at school.

Me: So what is a shape with 5 sides?
Sarah: A pentagon!
Robert: And what is a shape with 8 sides?
Sarah: An octagon!
Robert: And what is a shape with 6 sides?
Sarah: *looks shocked and shakes her finger at Robert*. Daddy! we do NOT talk about that shape at school.

I'm confused too.

Competent Wombat

"If I didn't get boo boos and scrapes, I'm not doing a very good job of being a kid."

While cleaning her room:

Sarah: Mommy, look how much books I can carry!
Me: *corrects* How MANY books you can carry.
Sarah: This many!
