Conversation between dad and children.

Dad, "Alright, everyone who plays with the chalk, raise your hand."
Every child raises hand. 
Dad, "That's funny, Kronk (suburban) raised his hand. Should Kronk be playing with the chalk? Do you know what happens when Kronk plays with the chalk?"
Shannon, age 7, tentatively replies, "He breaks them?"
Dad, "He actually crushes them. They turn into dust, and are ruined. He's sitting on one now."
Ashley, age 6, "Get it out!"
Dad, "I don't want to lose my fingers! Stop letting Kronk play with the chalk. Put it away when you're done."

I'm not safe!

On our weekly trip to the library, the parking lot was full, so we had to park on the street. The kids all ran towards the building.
Michael, age 4, stops in the entry driveway. Turns around, sees a car attempting to get out l, and exclaims, "Ah! I am not safe!"  He promptly turns and runs back to mom.
