Here is just one of the many entertaining conversations I participated in with Aubrey (5) and her best friend Elizabeth (7) on our way home from school this week.
E: Mrs Robin, this boy in my class cuts the cheese in the lunchroom ALL the time!
Me: Ew! Gross! Does he get in trouble?
E: No. Nobody tells on him.
A: He cuts cheese? Why doesn’t his Mommy cut it for him at home?
(Elizabeth doubled over with laughter.)
E: THE cheese, Aubrey! It means he tooted.
A: He tooted when he cut the cheese? (confused face)
E: (still giggling) No! It means he tooted….cutting the cheese means somebody tooted!
A: OOOOOHHH! Gross! Why does he toot at lunch?
We got home and all the girls were playing together. Aubrey came running into the kitchen and yelled, “Momma! Sadie cut the chicken!”
Aubrey: It MEANS she’s got a pant load.
