Scary Wombat

Sarah is REALLY getting into the scary and downright morbid aspects of Halloween.

Me: *messaging on my phone*
Sarah: What are you doing, Mommy?
Me: I'm messaging my friend Adrienne.
Sarah: Oh. Is she dead?
Me: What? No she's not dead. She's in Chicago!
Sarah: *giggles*

Are you smarter than a Wombat?

While watching "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?"

Sarah: am I smarter than a 5th grader?
Me: I bet you'll be a very smart 5th grader when you get there!
Me: Am I?
Sarah: I dunno. Grownups are pretty smart, but so are 5th graders.

Inventor Wombat

Robert brought Sarah a magnet building toy. She has made many things, but this is my favorite. It is (in her words) "a machine to send out colors to the whole world."

Artistic Wombat

While getting Sarah ready for school this morning:

Me: Sarah, what's on your face?
Sarah: Well that depends. What color is it?
