It's All in the Interpretation

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

When singing the praises of the Hope diamond to your children, one should remember the interpretation of the word "huge".

Because "huge diamond" in a little girl's vocabulary translates into something along these lines.

And when it is the culmination of an extended museum tour, there might be much disappointment and possibly even some frustration. Because this is not huge (according to said 6-year-old).

The quartz was much more impressive.

Perhaps someday she'll be more persuaded. Someday.


  1. LOL I see how that could be disappointing! At least they had fun w/ the quartz :-P

  2. I have to laugh out loud to myself right now because when I was about 10 years old I went to the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. and saw the Hope Diamond. I was so excited to see the BIGGEST diamond known to man...and was very sadly disappointed when I saw it was no bigger than a quarter. Needless to say, I found more excitement in the tropical frogs than I ever did in the diamond!!

  3. That is so funny! Caleb was quite disappointed when we went to see it this summer also. I remembered it being bigger when I was young, so I was a little disappointed too if I'm honest. :)

  4. Yeah, she's not the only one. The exact same experience happened to me when I was young. I still haven't recovered from the let-down, and I'm STILL not impressed by the Hope Diamond. So there! :)

  5. LOL That's exactly what I thought when I saw it years and years ago.

  6. OK - still trying to get over the fact that you went museum hopping in my backyard without even a little phone call to me :)

    How about we meet on the 19th then? ;)
