M3 collects random things and names them. She brought Rocky home from MN, she has Pine Coney on her headboard, in the garage she has Sticky.
We were reading a book together and on one page it says, "How many of these animals can you name?" So, I said, "Catie, can you name any of these animals?" She said that she didn't think so. They were just run of the mill kids book animals, so I said, "Come on, give it a shot, just do as many as you can."
She took a deep breath, sighed, and said, "Well, I guess this would be Piggy and this one could be Cowy, and I'd call this one Browny." It was so hard to keep from laughing. Of course, now I ask her to name animals in all sorts of books.
I love seeing these weird miscommunications crop up with the kids. It will be long forgotten before long, but makes for funny little moments.
