More Conversations

As we were innocently driving to the apple orchard we passed some cows in a field that that reminded the kids about the dancing cows they saw at this years corn roast. The farmer that throws the corn roast raises heifers. Thousands of heifers. The kids have talked about the dancing cows before, but this kept going on and on and on.

It went basically like this...

Kids...
I wonder if those cows dance like the other cows at the corn roast?
Sometimes one of them would put their hooves on the back of the other one and dance.
Sometimes the one on the bottom would run away when one wanted to dance.
Would you call that dancing?

Dad...
Um...no

Kids...
Well, what would you call it?

You can NOT tell stories like that when I'm drinking my coffee! I almost inhaled it!

You crack me up...

I tried to tie a Baptist joke into that, but I'm not that quick on my feet today.

That's funny! Around our house we have a lot of deer and when "that" happened and my kids questioned it I would always tell them that one of the deer is letting the other deer use them as kind of a step stool so they can see better. I didn't know what else to say when they are only 4 & 6!!

Sounds like dancing to me! ;)

I want my kids to be that naive and innocent when they're your kids' ages.

Thank you for the laugh!
Our kids have noticed the cows "gettin' down" at the farm and Doodle always says, "Look- that one wants to wrestle the other one!"

We've said they're playing leapfrog. :)
