“Why’s His Head Out There?”

Best almost-4-year-old quote ever.

I bought these little hangers a couple of years ago at IKEA.  At the time I thought they’d be cute little person hangers for their coats, and since the little people I watch have 88 sled dogs, what better hangers than doggie butts?

It wasn’t until I cleared them off yesterday (of extra scarves, mitten, hats) that Elena really noticed them.

And yes, that was her first question.  “Why’s his head out there?”

Of course it was said with all the cuteness you can imagine in a sarcastic almost-4-year-old tone…insinuating that I was doing something wrong, or obviously stupid as I put their heads outside.


I just love a little person’s perspective.

As I told her Mom the story after work, I was told another funny story involving Miss E.  Her Dad had taken her and her sister on a road trip to visit their cousins (and to pick up his deer head mount).  You can see it coming right?  On the way home, the little Miss says “Dad, he’s lookin’ at me!”

Then a few moments later adds “Dad, can he blink?”


Have a good day!  And if you’re not – make it better by looking at things through the eyes of a child!

ps…Now remember when you look at this picture…I AM a thankfully imperfect woman, so NO I did not clean the door or wall before taking the picture, and YES that’s weather-stripping in the door, and YES it ends before it hits the floor…don’t ask me…I don’t have a clue.  That’s my husband’s department!

    Love it Patty. Reminds me of the time our neighbor had a deer hanging in the garage while he was butchering it. About 4 days into the process the tongue was hanging out of the animals mouth and his son said “Oh look, he’s finally dead”. Love your blog. Hope all is well and spring is coming. Hugs to you all
