It's happened. My daughter's intellect has finally surpassed my own.

Today she and I went grocery shopping. Due to the allergies and the stress and the work and the house, I've been a little off. When I'm distracted like this, I tend to repeat everything S says in an effort to trick her into thinking I'm actually participating in the conversation. I know, Mother of the Year Nominee, right here!

So, as I'm taking her out of the car in the parking lot at the store, she says:

"Grandma calls me 'Boo'."


"No," she says, "Hoo!"

"Hoo?" I ask.

"Don't cry, crybaby!" Then she falls into a fit of giggles.

Sure. Kick me when I'm down.

I love the humor of children. While not as funny as they think it is watching them laugh about it is just too cute. Sweet child!!

It actually went like this:

Knock Knock
Whose there?
Boo Who?
Why are you crying?

Her version was a little brutal. Maybe it was my tone.
