What'd You Say? Grass & Eyes

Driving down the road, NHV spots some horses in the field.  The following conversation ensued ... her thought process and what she says just cracks me up!

N:  Wat horsey dooo-wing?
M:  I don't know. What do you think the horsey is doing?
N:  Horsey tak-eeng nap?
M:  Maybe, but I think the horsey is eating his breakfast.
Silence.  Must mean my answer was satisfactory.  Score one for the mommy!

N:  Horsey eat gwass?
M:  Yep, that's right, horseys eat grass.

N:  Ofver aneemals eat gwass?
M:  Yes, other animals eat grass.  Can you think of another animal that eats grass?

At this point, I am guessing daddy recently had a chat with Natalie about animals and what they eat.  I had no idea where all of this was coming from!

N:  Yambs eat gwass?
M:  Wow! You're right.  Lambs do eat grass ... (don't they?)
Thinking that was a lucky guess ... 
M: Can you name another animal that eats grass?

N:  Cows?  Cows eat gwass?
M:  Yep, baby girl, cows eat grass.  Horseys eat grass.  Lambs eat grass. 

Holy cow!  Where did she learn all that?!  Score for the baby girl!

Quiet.  Quiet.  Quiet.

N:  See mowre horseys?
M:  I don't know if we'll see more horseys.  Keep your eyes out for them.

Quiet.  Quiet.  Quiet.

N:  No eyes out.  Mice eyes IN.

Well, you've got me there, Natalie!

Because I can't resist, here's a pic of NHV admiring the horseys during our recent pumpkin patch visit ...

I love conversations with toddlers---so funny to see how their little brains work.

We had a great toddler "thought" the other day too...
We had been blowing up a balloon and letting it go (quite a long time of entertainment, until mommy was feeling a bit dizzy). I decided it was time to tie the balloon up and bat it around. After that novelty was done, B asked me to "Momma, blow balloon down?!?" Took a moment to sink in, but I had been "Blowing it up" and clearly the opposite would be down! :) Love that sweet little boy!

So cute!

My son and I keep having conversations about the fact that people don't eat grass, even if animals do.

It's so great that you write this down. I need to do more of it, because they do say the funniest things and then I forget!
