Say Wha?

Tonight at dinner, Sam was so excited to tell us about a family tree that he is drawing. Since we have a bunch of family coming into town this weekend, he wants to have them sign his family tree. Tony decided to channel his excitement into a learning experience.

Tony: "Sam, who can sign your family tree?"
Sam: "Everybody...grandmas, grandpas, uncles, cousins...everybody."
Tony: "How about nieces and nephews...do you know what those are?"

Sam gets a puzzled look on his face and we can tell he's pondering deeply.

Sam: "Oh! (and I quote) An ef-you is..."

I almost spit my dessert across the table. Tony almost did too.

Well, I guess we DID ask...

Aren't kids great. We had a similar experience not to long ago with Travis', has to watch his mouth around the kids, cousin. Riley was making rapping noises, "fricka, fricka, etc." and Louie just started at us like we'd lost our minds. We understood what he was doing, Louie thought he had a potty mouth.

It took me a second to put all of that together, but I totally get it now. And I got a good laugh out of it. :0)
