From the mind of a 4 year old...

The other day Ben was asking Gar how old he was. Not used to being 4, Gar said he was 3. Ben corrected him and said that Gar was 4 years old now. Then he asked Gar again how old he was. Gar said, "Four mine old."
Ben said, "What? How old are you?"
Gar answered, "Four mine old."
"No Gar, you are Four years old," Ben corrected again, not quite sure what it was that Gar was actually saying.
"Right, Four mine old," Gar said again.

Suddenly we realized that Gar, who really has no concept of what a 'year' is was confusing the word with the word 'your'. He thought Ben was saying that he was 'Four yours old' and he was correctly saying that he was 'Four mine old'.

Out of the mouth of babes comes the most wonderful stuff.
