Don’t Be A Neigh-Sayer

| Austin, TX, USA | Children, Sons & Daughters, Theme Of The Month, Top

(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.”
