WWI, unicorns, and G is for Girl.

Real words from my children.

Upon the completion of a Civil War dvd,
with the new WWI dvd in hand:

"Wanna go ahead and watch WWI? I hear
it's pretty good. Good enough they made
a sequel. Supposedly, they're working on
making it a trilogy."

Two children:
"I love horses."

"Yeah, and unicorns. But there are no
unicorns, because they cut their horns
off when they're babies."

(Please imagine the horror in the girl child's
voice) "You can't cut off a unicorn's horn!"

"Yes, you can, with a saw."

"NO, you can't. If you cut off a unicorn's
horn, it kills them, you dummyhead!"

What's that? Why, yes, yes, we do indeed homeschool.

Kids really DO say the darndest things, even when
they're teenagers. Maybe ESPECIALLY when
they're teens!

Here is a G inchy:

G is for Girl

I have a G is for Giraffe, too, but no pic yet.
See more abc inchies at Fiona's.

Cute inchie! Did you ever hear The Unicorn Song by The Flying Dutchmen? At least I think that is who sang it. Gotta look that one up now!

Nope, never heard the song or of either of those groups, but I will bet youtube or playlist has!

I love to listen to children talk when they think no one is listening. They can be quite amusing!
