"Kids say the darndest things"

My daughter, trying to avoid going to bed, complained about her tummy the other night. She told me in her most drawn-out-pitiful voice,
"Mama, I have a stomach egg."

I had to bite the side of my cheek while I made sure she was comfortable and tucked her back in bed.

A few days ago, my daughter asked my completely caught-off-guard husband,
"Why you got a horn growing out of your legs?"


More Silence.

I later explained what the "horn" was to my daughter- citing her brother since she's always pointing and asking what "that" is while I'm changing his diaper.

I never put it together before - but a lightbulb just went off above my head.
Horn = Horny.

another great story to tell her when she's older.

Oh, won't she be so embarrassed! Of course, the hubby doesn't ever want it mentioned again!
