My Three-Year-Old as an Eye-Witness

Emily went with Phillip the other night to pick up supper, and she saw a girl from her preschool. When she got home and told me she saw her, the following conversation took place....

Me: Wow, you saw Ella? That's neat.
Emily: Yep.
Me: Was she with her mommy?
Emily: No, she was with her daddy.
Me: Oh, we've never met her daddy. What did her daddy look like?
Emily: (thinking for a full minute) He had a round head...(making a circle motion with both hands)...and two eyes (holding up two fingers).

Can't you just hear her as an eye witness telling the cops that he "has a round head and two eyes"? I love it!

That's so funny! I can imagine her saying that.
