so we get to the part where the book asks how much water would 55 elephants drink.
7yo: if it was 264 elephants, they would drink all the oceans. it would take maybe a week. [smiles and nods head yes vigorously]
7yo: but they’d spit the fish out. like this. [makes noise like she is hocking up a loogie, then a ptui sound]
me: [drops head on table]
7yo is reading this dr. seuss book to me. she gets to the part about the floating pool.
me: i think that would be totally cool.
7yo [making a horrified face]: NOT IF IT IS RAINING RABID DINGOS!!!!!
me: you frighten me.
7yo: [laughs uncontrollably]
when going in to tidy up the kids’ bathroom before bed, daddy noticed that 7yo had written this on the bathroom wall:
[read: Darkness riseing over us and the city. “ahaha”hahahaha!]
when asked about it and where it came from (we were hoping from a show or book), she said she just thought it up and giggled hysterically.
hold me. i’m afraid.
i have determined that 5yo is the pig in the “if you give a pig a pancake” book, which we read tonight.
