Conversations w/a 9 year old

this morning:

Amari: Mommy, do I have elf ears?

Mommy: Of course not. Elf ears are pointy and big. Yours are just right.

silence

Mommy: Why are you asking about elf ears? Who said that to you?

silence

Amari: Terrell.

Mommy: Who is that?

Amari: You know the boy in the school picture standing behind me?

Mommy: NO. WHO IS THAT??

Amari: In the school picture, Ma... Behind me...

silence

Mommy: NO. Who is Terrell?

silence

Amari: He's someone that doesn't like himself so he talks about other people so they wont notice he's wack.

Mommy (smiling): You're really good. You know that?

Amari (Shrugging): Yea. I know.
