Sundays Are For Sebastian—#76

Sebastian is my six-year old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people.


Sebastian came into the bathroom and jumped on the scale.

“I am 55 pounds!”

My wife: “Really? Wow, you are getting really big!”

Seba: “I am going to weigh myself again.”

This time he got on the scale and immediately raised both of his arms as high as he could over his head.

My Wife: “What are you doing?”

Seba: “Cheating.”

My wife: “How are you cheating?”

Sebastian: “I am making myself bigger.”





About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

  1. Okay…this time I don’t side with the six-year-old. His logic is clearly skewed this time around

    Dang, so THAT’S what I have been doing wrong- got to stop raising my arms overhead when weighing myself 🙂

    Oh, that was too adorable! 🙂


  5. Wait! Sebastian is SIX? And I started reading these posts when he was FOUR? Wow–time flies.

    That’s classic Piaget preoperational thinking — watch for big changes at age 7, when his brain grows into the stage of understanding the concept of conservation, and begins to use inductive reasoning. I’m sure his induction will be more creative and amusing. than the average thinker’s.

    Seems perfectly logical to me. Next time I get on the scale, I’m going to squat down. 😉
