4 going on 20

Yesterday I picked up a friend's daughter, K, for swimming lessons. She gets in the car and I buckle her in the booster seat and shut the door. I get in and start driving off. I hear the girls talking in the back. They sound so serious...

K: Ansley, I have some bad news....

Ansley: Oh no! What happened?

K: My fish died

Ansley: Oh how terrible! Are you so sad?

Bear in mind, K just turned 5 and Ansley is 4. This just floored me! They sound like little women already! Their tone was so serious... I had to try so hard to keep from laughing. I had to call K's mom immediately and she was just as in awe as I was.

They grow up so fast. It is hard to see your 4 year old already acting like she is 20.

*Mike brought something to my attention about the title of my post, now I was never a pot head so I did not catch the "420" reference.

The same thing happened with my 3 year old...except she killed the fish when she reached in and wanted to hold it!

She'll tell you quite seriously... "I killed Rickey" (our goldfish are Rickey and Lucy)

Am I showing how square I am when I say I still don't know the significance of your title????
