Porking Your Hair

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

Zachary has a few words still that aren't quite right, but I just don't have the heart to correct him, especially since I know that one day soon he'll figure them out and those cute words will be gone.

He came up to me the other day, handed me a spray bottle and a comb and asked me, "Mom. Could you pork my hair?"

He wants me to spike it (poke is the only word I can think of that he is meaning to say).


The girls and I were studying about Russia and talking about the period of time that people were told they couldn't believe in God. I asked the girls what they would do if they couldn't worship God and Laurianna said she would go to the mountains and hide so she could sing and praise Jesus.

McKenna said, "I'd kill the king."

My shock didn't seem to phase her. When I said that a) killing people is not a good option and that b) the police could throw you in jail anyway she thought for a minute and said, "Oh. I guess I shouldn't do that."

Apparently we have a few things to talk about with little Miss McKenna.

That talk about worshipping God led to a discussion about atheism and that some people don't believe in God. Laurianna wanted to know what atheists believe in if they don't believe in God. When I answered "nothing" she got this incredulous look on her face.

She then asked, "You mean they don't believe that cows poop?"

And apparently I need to further explain "nothing."

Head on over to Mary's at Not Before 7 for some more Tiny Talk Tuesday!!


  1. Ok, I laughed at every single story! "pork my hair" - too funny. My favorite was the girls trying to figure out what believing in "nothing" meant. I love that age!

  2. hahahahahahhaha Zachary cracks me up!! Glad to know that atheists don't believe in cows pooping ;-)

  3. Oh my, thanks for starting my day with a smile! Those stories are so funny. I know what you mean about not wanting to correct the little cute "mis-speaks" my "baby" is 4 now and I know this is the last time I'll get to cherish that talk. Happy TTT!

  4. LOL. That made me chuckle. Thanks for the laughs.

  5. LOL...again...they were just as funny to read as they were to hear :) One of these times I'll meet the kids too ;)

  6. It is hard to know when to open up that discussion and when to let little minds wander a little bit, what to do with Russian dictators and athiests?

  7. "You mean they don't believe that cows poop?"

    Just what pops into my head when I think of all the things I WOULDN'T believe in if I really believed NOTHING.

    I always love your Tiny Talk Tuesday posts--keep 'em coming!

  8. How funny is that? Yep, I guess they needed further explanation about what believing in nothing means. Why is that poop always comes to mind with the little munchkins.
