My Gracie goose. What a funny girl. Throughout the life of this blog so far, I've quoted her many times. I'm so glad I have the funny little things she says documented.
She's growing up so fast, and I'm already missing all the little "mis-sayings" and innocent misunderstandings.
The other day she was sitting with my brother, Timmy who just so happened to be eating chicken.
Gracie looked at him, and you could tell she was really thinking. She said to him "Hm, isn't it funny that you're eating chicken, and Aunt Pattalynn has chickens?"
Timmy just looked at me, kind of puzzled, and said "Yeah...do you think I'm eating one of Aunt Patti-Lynn's chickens?"
She giggles and says "No silly! It's just the same word! Chicken you eat, and chicken animals"
We honestly weren't really sure how to react to that. There comes a point where you just assume they know certain things. I thought this was kind of funny.
The only kind of meat the kid will eat is chicken, so if we're having pork, we call it chicken. If we're having steak, we call it chicken. As long as she knows it's "chicken" she'll eat it. If she knew that "chicken" was actually a chicken...do you think she'd eat it?
I think we'll let her learn this one in her own time.
