Kids say the darndest things

My Mother-in-law and sister-in-law, and 2 nieces and 3 nephews just left from paying us a 4-day visit. Here's some funny things those kids said:

We visited Colossal Caves. Our tour guide warned us that there was some low-hanging formations and that anyone over 5'7" will have to crouch down.
My mom (who is also here (party at my house)):Well, I don't have to worry about that. (She's 5'1" or 2")
Maddy: Me neither, I'm six years old.

After dinner, a couple people pitched in and helped.
Grandma Ball: Well, that went fast with all those people helping.
Me: Well, like my mom always says, 'many hands make light work.'
Ty (age 8, I think): Yeah, well, many hands also make a lot of messes.

Maddy: Aunt Amanda, what are you going to be when you grow up?
Me: I don't know Maddy, what do you think I should be?
Maddy: A nurse maybe. I'm going to be a pizza chef and no one will change my mind.
later that night
Maddy: When I grow up I'm going to live in Washington D.C. and be a secretary.
Me: Oh, a secretary of what? Defense? Transportation? Education?
Maddy: Um.... Elevators. Yeah, Secretary of Elevators.

Ty's comment is absolutely brilliant.

I would be Secretary of Elevators any day. It sounds like a great job. I wonder if I could land that position with my Communication degree.

Ryan and I agree that a Secretary of Elevators could be way cooler then a pizza chef!
