I've been invited to participate in a blog hop of funny stories of what kids say. This is a change of pace for this heavy blog, which is nice.
This story transpired several weeks ago, when my 8-year-old son was distraught over the fact that Lego is no longer going to be producing Bionicles. He loves Bionicles. He has Mama's crusading bug, so he was busy making fliers advertising a petition to the Lego company to reconsider their decision. He took them door to door to some friends' houses. During a car trip he and I and my 4-year-old daughter were discussing his approach to spreading the word. A man of action, he simply introduced the issue by telling people "Bionicle is going!"
So my daughter, ever the eloquent one, chimed in: "I think you'd better say instead 'The Bionicle product line is being discontinued.'"
She was hired as PR consultant on the spot.
