A van Gogh moment~sort of

I was reading a story about Vincent van Gogh to my 5 year old and when we came to the part about him taking a knife and cutting off part of his ear because he had gotten into a fight with a friend she stopped me so I could tell her more about it. (Why do things like this get their attention so easily?!!) So I just explained to her that his mind must have been a bit 'jumbled' and he did it in haste and how we should be careful not to make rash decisions that could affect us for the rest of our lives. She had this look of what I thought was total understanding until she opened her mouth and said:

"Wow, he should have used scissors, that would have been way easier I think."

Not at all what I expected or even hoped to hear her say!! Definitely NOT a light bulb moment!!

Well, she's right, scissors would have been easy. Even if it doesn't seem they are listening, they do always seem to pick up on the one thing that it would be nice if they missed.

Thanks for sharing.
