From the Mouths of Babes

A couple of funnies..

This one is an oldie but goodie from when Kate was about four.
She wanted to watch "the pig movie."

Which one? We tried to guess: Babe? Old McDonald?

No, neither of those.

Her tiny forehead wrinkled in thought
and then her eyes lit up.

"Charlotte's Website!" she exclaimed.


This morning, as Trey was sitting on the kitchen floor tying his shoes
and I was reading the paper at the kitchen island:

"Mom, how do you spell Ho?"

Pause, as I consider this question. Being that this seven year old boy
has two older siblings, I am not sure exactly where he is going with this.
I decide to try the relatively benign "What?" response, hoping to weed out more info.

"I said, how do you spell Ho?" he asked again.

Pause again.
Drat. My plan didn't work.

I decided to err on the side of hope:
"Do you mean hoe as in a farmer hoes his fields?"

"What? No!"


"I mean Ho as is Hiddely Hi Ho!"

Me, to myself, Oh, Thank GOD!
Me, to Trey: "H-O."

"K, thanx!"

I sag with relief as he gets up and scampers off.
Blessed innocence!
