Mine is smarter than yours


Jenny grew up in New York and now calls Utah home. She gets to be a mom to six awesome kids and can see the Land of No More Diapers on the horizon.

...well, she’s smarter than her mom, anyway.

In the case that I’m asked the question, “What one thing would you want with you on a deserted island?”, the debate within is always: Which CD? That, of course, assuming there’s a CD player and a power source on said island.

Last night we watched a bit of Castaway on Channel 4 and li’l ~j. was obsessed with, “Man, I’ll bet that guy wishes he had brought along his shaver! He doesn’t even get to SHAVE!”

So tonight as we were eating our Bear Creek Darn Good Chili (because it came from Maceys), I posed the question to my children: If you were stuck on an island like that guy in the movie last night, what one thing would you want with you?

Curly thought for a minute before happily and confidently proclaiming, “Kitties!”

Li’l ~j. looked at me and said...

... “a boat.”

Count her smarter than me too. :)

I would have probably thought of a satellite phone or something like that; however, a boat would be a much better choice - provided that it wasn't a toy one...

Funny how kids come up with the answers that make sense for these things. Of course a boat!

THE most obvious answer is often times the last one we think of.
