Children: Circular Discussion

Here’s a circular discussion that took place when my children, L (9), B (7), and M (5), were young. This was the kind of conversation that made my head feel foggy.

B: Mommy, does Loretta Lynn sing that song?

M: What?

B: I asked Mommy if Loretta Lynn sings that song.

M: Who’s Reletta Lynn?

B: Ha, ha, ha, he said "Reletta"!

L (exasperated): A country and western singer, M!

B: Mommy, does Reletta Lynn sing that song?

M: What song?
