    When my daughter was very young we lived on a mountain near Scottsville, Alabama. We had to cross a long bridge to get to town, passing a bait shop/quick mart on the way. At three years of age she loved to ask for us to stop at the bait shop for "cut-down" bubble gum, we usually obliged and let her pay for it herself at the counter.

    But every time we asked her what "cut-down" meant she'd get indignant and say, "You know!"

    It was years and years before she was able to remind us that the area around the bait shop had a hillside of cut down trees where they were clearing for road improvements!

    Of course, this is the same child who wouldn't eat the bubble gum the rural postman gave her because it had two little tiny 'dimples' in it (remember those log-shaped ones?) and she thought he had bitten it first!

    When my oldest was about 4, he could not keep a secret. His dad took him Christmas shopping and managed to convince him NOT to tell me what they had purchased for me. When they came home, my boy very proudly said to me that he wasn't going to tell me what my present was, but that they had got it at the slippers store.

    One day while doing laundry, I asked my youngest son if he was out of pants. He replied "No, I'm in of pants" and it's become part of our family's vernacular.

    Other cute things my children have come up with over the years: Instruction sheets for things you put together are "constructions". Apartments are "compartments".

    I have to share this about my Niece. We were at our parents house & she had to go to the batroom. My sister took her & decide to use the bathroom also. While my sister was busy doing her business my 5 year old niece started going through the cabinet. She found Grandma's femine pads & ask my sister what they were. She told her that they were band-aids. After a couple of minutes my niece said they must have been for Grandaddy because they were so big. That's been 12 years ago & we still laugh about it.

    My DGD just last year couldn't say her 'R's' and would say words like:

    purr....pee
    squirel...squeel
    girls...geels


    So when she told me the cat was peeing, I about freaked! He was purring! She corrected her speech in just 2 days all by herself. She's an amazing 5 year old!

    When my oldest son was about 3 or 4, I found my some of my feminine pads had been opened and left on the bathroom floor. It looked like someone had tried to take a bite out of them. I always kept them under the sink in the bathroom. Apparently he thought that they were rice crispies treats. Why he had to try several I will never understand.

    Um, yeah... so? LOL! My family & DH's are both from the south so we wouldn't know what to do with a "pEn"... LOL!

    Another one from my DD (who would KILL me if she knew I was telling you all her business... LOL!). She was 5 when I had to have a hysterectomy. I was trying to explain it so her but wasn't sure how to do so so I told her I was getting fixed like Amber (our Golden who had been spayed years earlier). She bought that & I didn't give it another thought. We were in the grocery store & the sack boy (remember back in the day when there were sack boys? LOL!) was pushing her & the groceries in the cart out to the car. He asked what we were doing that weekend & Cara Leigh announced "We're getting Mommy fixed!". OMG! He cracked up & I wanted the ground to open up & swallow me!

    When my grandson was about 5 he spent a few days with my daughter and her husband (Unca Bubba) who has a lot of cool tools, then he came to our house and when he walked into my sewing room the first thing he did was run his hand very gently along my sewing machine and asked, "What does this baby do?"
