Conversation with a 7–Year Old

The other day I was taking a moment to dialogue with a few of the kids in my wife’s daycare business. Most of those who were talking to me were girls. The subject of toys at the store came up. One of the boys who is of school age (and so is just here with his little brother for the summer) seemed to be taking an interest in the conversation.
So I turned to him…
Me: So what do you think? Do you like to go down the pink aisle?
C: No!
Me: What’s on the pink aisle?
C: Barbies and babies…
Me: Princess stuff?
C: Yeah… [look of disgust]
Me: So you don’t like to go down the pink aisle, huh?
C: Nah. I like to go down the violence aisle!
Me: ?
C: You know, guns and swords!…

  1. Guns and swords.
    Action figures and Legos.
    Stuffed animals and art stuff.
    But the point of the post wasn’t to say kids shouldn’t play with guns and swords. I just thought it was a funny conversation…
