Funny Finn-ism for the Day

Setting the scene: Finn went upstairs to get his teeth brushed this evening before bedtime and was chatting with Torey about something. Julia started heading up the stairs to get her pajamas on and Finn came around the corner.

Finn informs Julia: "You know, Julia, when all of your hair falls out, then you won't be a mammal anymore."

What?! Where did this come from?! Finn is surely growing up and picking up information all over the place. We asked him where he learned about mammals and his response was "I just know about them." For those of you who have spoken with Finn personally, you can imagine his matter-of-fact tone of voice when reciting those words! Just so you know, we did inform Finn that sometimes mammals can have all of their hair shaved off and still be mammals - it's the fact that they CAN grow hair that makes them mammals. That definitely is a confusing statement to a little guy who must have recently learned that ALL mammals have hair.

Needless to say, this was a hilarious end to a long day. As tiring as it can be, I guess it can be a stress reliever to have a 3 year old in the house!

Oh my gosh! Did I laugh (grandpa too). That is so Finn. Absorbing all that knowledge and relating it to his life. Amazing. Thanks for sharing. Love to all. Grandma Colleen

What a Finny! I definitely could imagine hearing him say that. Finn, keep soaking in all the knowledge. You will keep us all on our toes. Love you, Grandma Beth

Mandy, you may be the first ever person to say that having a 3-year old is a stress reliever...but that is a funny Finn-ism! Take care and I'll try to call soon. - Uncle Jason
