Today we were playing Monopoly as a family and Courtney said, “Mommy, can I see your moose?” I said, “What are you talking about, I don’t have a moose”. She said, “Yes, your moose right here on your side”. (Be sure to say your r’s like you are from Boston to get the full affect of her accent) I then figured out that she was talking about a mole. She knew that it was an animal name that started with m so she just said moose. I have been giggling off and on all day about it.
A couple of weeks ago, some friends were visiting from out of town. The husbands name is Guy. As we were leaving, I said, “Bye, Mr. Guy. Courtney can you tell Mr. Guy goodby?” Courtney said, “Bye, Mr. Dude”. She was close but didn’t understand that his name really is Guy.
After church one Sunday we were going to meet some friends of ours for lunch. The daddy of the family is really tall. When we got to the restaurant Courtney asked if the Philistines were there yet.
