October 19, 2006 "Overheard on Aisle 3"
When Allie was visiting, we were talking about some of the funny things you say as a parent - things that could be misunderstood if taken out of context. I caught a few of them this week. I'll set it up as though someone is listening on another aisle, but can't see us.
Overheard, part 1 - what you thought you heard:
Isabella: "I want a poo! I want a poo! I want a POOOOO!"
Mommy: "There's a poo in the car, just a minute, you can see poo."
Reality: Isabella has spied a Winnie the Pooh doll that she wants. I remind her that we have a Pooh DVD to watch in the car.
Overheard, part 2:
Mommy: "There's a poo on your head! There's a poo on your head!"
Reality: Isabella & Jadyn are holding Pooh dolls on their heads while riding in the shopping cart.
OK, so Winnie the Pooh is the funniest example, for obvious reasons. And I could go on & on, since most of our outings end with me hurriedly pushing the girls to the car, assuring them that "poo" is inside. That's how I get my kicks.
