Zane: Wet toots sneak up on you!
Aris spiked a high fever this evening. Although it is slowly coming down, she is still rather miserable. When I suggested that she go to bed early, she balked.
Me: Sick little girls need to go to bed early.
Aris: I'm not sick, I just have a fever! (said rather indignantly).
While cuddling with my sick little girl, we read a book about Canadian insects. Kian joined us at the grasshopper section.
Me: (reading the title) Grasshopper
Kian: That not a grasshopper!
Me: Yes, it's a grasshopper.
Kian: No, it not a grasshopper.
(repeat approximately five times)
Me: Well then, what is it?
Kian: I don't know...(pointing at the picture) What is that?
Me: Those are the grasshopper wings.
Kian: It has wings? It not a bug, it a bird!!!
He pronounced "bird" as "beard" which led to some confusion but we eventually figured it out.
