Anatomy Lesson


The Mayor spoke excitedly in all caps...


"MOM! GUESS WHAT?"

"What, Mayor?"

"THERE ARE NO BONES IN HAIR!!"

"That's right, Mayor! There aren't any bones in hair!"

Oh, my brilliant child!

"THERE AREN'T ANY BONES IN YOUR HAIR! NOT EVEN IN YOUR HAIR MUSCLES."

[Sigh.]

Oh, my brilliant child!

Oh, I think it's brilliant to even think up such a thing. I wonder how many people do believe there are indeed bones in hair.

So that's how people get great body in their hair.... bulking up their hair muscles. I'd better head for the gym right away.

CamiKaos said...

still brilliant... just to think of it. and completely adorable!

He's Brilliantly Creative!!

Cyndi said...

What? There aren't bones in hair muscles, right? he, cute kid.

Jordan said...

That's excellent. I always say, just when you think they've GOT IT...

Maureen said...

Ha!!!!

Love the "spoke excitedly in all caps"

But he IS right, you know...

meno said...

It's the sense of discovery that charms.

It's all new and all true.

Hahahahaha! That boy - nothing gets past him!
I just love the stuff little kids say, and yours seem to have some real beauties!

If there are no hair muscles then how is it that I can flex my hair?

He's on to something.

flutter said...

that's some strong hair.

Bianka said...

My husband will be pleased to know that he has hair muscles. Perhaps those are ones that he can actually take the time to work on!

Crazed Mom said...

I've been in anatomy classes with people who've less. ;)

jess said...

My hair has muscles. They work out when it rains and then my hair frizzes up to twice the size.

I think the Mayor is a genius and I'm totally going to vote for him when he's running for president.

Bryan said...

He really look into every single details. That's adorable, isn't it?

Amy said...

HAH!

(I completely agree with the commenter who spoke of frizz...my hair is very, very, VERY muscular.)

Maggie said...

children are masters at 'thinking outside the box'. why be in the box, it's so boring.

Fairly Odd Mother said...

Well, THAT explains why my hair is as straight as a board----I haven't been working their muscles enough.

Patience said...

I believe I have bones in my hair, but no muscles.

This child is most definitely a genius.

furiousBall said...

i was just doing some hair pushups, check out my hair muscles

Beck said...

Hair muscles would explain a lot about The Boy's hair, though. Otherwise, it's just disobeying the Law of Gravity.

Damselfly said...

And I am so grateful for this fact.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee, last year Miss E (then 6) listed the major organs and included the soul. It was cute, and I laughed. Bad Mummy.

Queen Karana said...

That must be MY problem. I don't have any hair muscles so my hair just flops around doing nothing - no body, no bounce, just blah.

fairytalesandmargaritas said...

That is so dang cute! I'm so glad that you blog this stuff bc 1) it makes me feel so normal and 2) it'll be so fun to look back on this stuff when they're older!

Omaha Mama said...

No kidding - I read this last night and this morning, my B climbed in bed with us and told me that her hair is made of bones. WTH? Is it a developmental milestone? Are they teaching preschoolers A & P?

Jenifer said...

Thank goodness I have enough muscles out of shape!

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

What, your hair doesn't have muscles?

WUSS.

Deb said...

LOL!

Jerseygirl89 said...

I am so going to ask my three year old her opinion tomorrow. Except that I fear her reply will be not half as brilliant.

Laski said...

Wow!!! He is brilliant. Though, I wish my hair had more muscle . . .

Above Average Joe said...

But if we had muscles in our hair would we need hairspray?

liv said...

oh, the lesson! no bones in hair!

Cosmetic Dentist said...

The thought patterns that kids have sometimes can be quite interesting. No adult would ever think about that.

Tis I. said...

ROFLMAO!!

I HAVE got to run to bed.. but, I'll be back tomorrow.. I've missed your humor.. too good.. lol!

Tara said...

That is SO cute.
I just love the things children come out with - it's remembering them all that's the problem.
It's great to be able to write about it in a blog so you can embarass them about it in years to come!

zyriana said...

OH I just love the Mayor! :) He always has us giggling!
