This is an excellent piece of work, very interesting to read and so real to life, it tells of children asking many questions , putting an adult on the spot and just talking about many embarrassing truths. I found ' From the mouth of babies ' a delightful innocent read , As spoken from a child's point of view.

    Been out of the writing circle dealing with life for some time...just decided to climb back in this week and discovered this posting. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.

Excellent account of a conversation. You are awesome at letting the story emerge from the dialogue. It reminded me of conversations with my younger son. He loved to probe...still does. I'm looking forward to chats with my grandson who will be two next month. At the moment we have a small communication problem that hinders dialogue. He understands me. But, alas, he is only fluent in baby language and I am struggling! For example, what is "eh-weh"??

From simple conversations we sure learn a lot don't we?
I liked that you didn't fill the story up with background information...you let the words paint the picture. Then you stopped...GOOD WORK.

    Way bless your heart....I sure hope the new year is better to you than the last two months. I'll keep your husband in my thoughts and I hope the fire wasn't too bad. Hang in there. Remember writing can be as good as therapy and certainly cheaper

Excellent, yes--the little
ones will spill the beans
so to speak. You did a great
job with this, the dialogue
easily carried the story all
the way through and it definitely
held the reader's interest. no nits
or spags. Lora

Isn't funny what they come up with? I remember thinking there were little men in the radio and asked Dad, how they got in there. also telling my grandmother the guys opening the doors in the subway must be really skinny to fit inbetween such a narrow space.
THe only nit was in the author notes.

had this conversation with my little one as we dronve to my house...or her's as she thinks.

hugs book

Hi Smiles for Miles. Yeah, you get caught in the act huh? Little kids say just whats on their minds even if it hurts you.
I liked your essay. It conveyed good interaction and formed your little character well. When are you going to bring Frankie back?

    Jada,

    Haven't had much time to call my own of late..Hope you are feeling better. Mike had his surgery yesterday and so far so good. We will lmow more after the week end when they have had a chance to grow the fungus cells. I miss my writing and reading. I only can grab a moment here and there.

    Take care...lots of love and smiles...Carol

Oh, yes -- Out of the mouths of babes... One never knows what they will hear, do they? Ownership is such a silly thing, and it looks so different from each person's perspective. I'm glad you were able to write about this. It sounds like your daughter and granddaughter are fortunate to have you close by. You have done a good job using the dialog to pull one into the car ride. Thanks for sharing!

Littles ones are so innocent when they speak. It's a shame she has to be drug into all the turmoil. Her daddy sounds like a real jerk, if I be so bold as to say that.

Sounds true to likfe, Begin Again. Everything you've said --through the little girl--about "Daddy" fits a bum

Maybe there's some good in there, but it's usually hard to find.

Hmmm! Thought provoking stuff the fact that it's true sort of makes it a bit to personal for me when considering some of the subject matter. Well written though and easy to follow.
