Kids Say the Darndest Things

add to kirtsy

This morning I was helping my 10-year-old daughter study for her test on the brain. I would ask her “What does the Temporal Lobe control?” She would answer, “Problem solving and emotions.”

I would then ask her, “What does the Occipital Lobe control?” She would answer, “Vision.”

Well she seemed to get most of the answers correct when asked in this format. So I decided to change things up and ask the questions in a different way. So then I asked, “What lobe controls emotions and problem solving?” She answered, “Frontal Lobe.”

Finally, I asked her, “What Lobe controls hearing?” She didn’t recall this one as well. She paused while she thought about it, at which point her 6-year-old brother chimed in, “The Ear Lobe.”

Talk about a good laugh over a plate of waffles. Leave it to kids to be so literal and so funny.
