    Don’t Be A Neigh-Sayer

    (My 3-and-a-half-year-old son is watching TV, when a cartoon about a hippo comes on.)

    Son: “Mommy, do hippos have tails?”

    Me: “Yes, baby.”

    Son: “Mommy, what other animals have tails?”

    Me: “Lots. Dogs, cats, pigs, cows, horses.”

    Son: “Horses moo!”

    Me: “You’re silly, horses don’t moo!”

    Son: “Horses moo! Horses moo!”

    (He continues saying ‘Horses moo!’ over and over while laughing hysterically for about a full minute.)

    Son: “Horses moo!” *makes a sad face* “Aww.”

    Me: “What’s wrong?”

    Son: “It wasn’t funny that time.”
