Yesterday, Gracen was in the question asking mode and it didn't stop all day. I wish now I would have written down all of the questions, because she had some really cute ones like "Momma, why does the rooster say cook-a-doodle poo?" and "Momma, why do you close you eyes when I talk?" and "Momma, why can't we have whipped cream for breakfast?"
and "Momma, why are you looking at me so weird?"
There was one question however, that really started an interesting conversation between us. Her original question was "Momma, do cows pee pee milk?" and I thought wow that is a great question. Where did she come up with that one? I answered with a no, and I told her that just like us they only pee pee pee pee. Well, that was OK for a little while and then she proceeded to tell me that she saw a cow pee pee milk on Sesame Street. As I quickly thought through how to explain this in an age appropriate way, she said "that's OK Momma, you can't know everything" and I left the conversation with "yes,that is exactly right." =)
This morning, the cow and milk conversation presented itself again. Before I answered her, I flashed back to the conversation I had had with Jamie the night before as I told him this story. His first response was "Well, did you tell her it came from the teat?" and of course my response was "No, I didn't!" I really didn't want to explain this whole process to her because I was not really ready for the 40 questions to follow.
Well, I did go with Jamie's "teat" version and to my surprise her response was "Ohhhh, and that is why we buy our milk from the Teeter, right Momma?"
FYI... The "Teeter" is a little nickname we have given the Harris Teeter, our local grocery store.
