Amanda Jargon

Yesterday I got to accompany Amanda's 4th grade class on a field trip to Columbia State Park. It was fun seeing the historic mining town and watching the kids pan for gold.

Walking down Main Street, Amanda noticed a stairway next to the sidewalk that went down about 8 feet only to come right back up to the sidewalk 6 feet later. It seemed rather pointless until she said ...

Amanda: So Mom, that must be what you call a 'long-cut'.

Me: You mean like the opposite of a 'short-cut'?

Amanda: Yeah.

Me: I think you may be right.

This little exchange made me think of a couple other things that Amanda came up with back when she was about 4 years old ...

Instead of "shorts", she would call them "short sleeve pants".

And instead of "big toe", she would refer to hers as the "thumb toe".

I miss those days.
