Last week, we were cleaning up some kid clutter. The Princess was in true princess fashion and did not want to fully participate. When I explained that picking something up from one spot and dropping it in another was not "cleaning", she said, "Crap!" To which the Prince replied, "Actually, it's 'crud'. That's the scientific word for it." I didn't know science was so simple ... or had so many four-letter words.
The next day, I had a babysitter come to watch the Prince and Princess so that I could retrieve some beef from the abattoir and organize it in our freezers for sale to the public. After picking up our beef and returning to the house, I checked on the children. The conversation went like this:
Prince (excitedly): Mama, the cow ejected the calf and it is on the outside of the fence.
Me (because I couldn't decifer the 8-year-old cowboy wanna-be): The cow did what?
Prince (more calmly): The. mama. cow. ejected. the. calf. and. it. is. on. the. outside. of. the. fence.
Me: Oh, you mean she "rejected" the calf.
I guess that maybe she "ejected" it too, since it was on the outside of the fence. (No, she didn't really reject it. They just got separated from each other.)
