Mommy, you're a Cow!
Conversation with my 4 year old last night as I’m tucking him into bed.
4 yo: "Mommy you’re a cow."
Me: "I’m a what?"
[looks at me and repeats it slowly and deliberately... apparently I'm also old and deaf.]
4 yo: "You’re - a - cow."
[debating whether to ask... alright, I’ll bite]
Me: "Why am I a cow?"
4 yo: "Well... all sorts of cows make milk and YOU make milk. So you're a cow."
[stands to reason... he’s a pretty logical kid]
Me: "Mhmmm. Interesting point. But, did you know that cats make milk. And dogs, pigs, sheep, goats, deer and even horses."
[his eyes open super wide, eyebrows slightly raised]
4 yo: "You mean... it isn’t just cows and people that make milk?"
Me: "Nope. Mommy cats make milk for their babies, and so do the pigs and all the rest of the animals I just told you about. And there are others too."
4 yo: "Wow!"
Me: *Grin* "So next time, can I just be a cat instead?"
4 yo: *Smiles* "Yes mommy. Next time you can be a cat."
Me: "Meow" ;)
4 yo: *Giggles*
