Well, no wonder we were arguing.

While I was cooking dinner this week, the little two girls were sitting at the kitchen counter.
We were talking about animals and what kind of sounds they make.

Me: "What does a doggy say?"

Them: "Ruff! Ruff!!"

Me: "What about... a monkey!"

5: "We has monkeys in E-topia!"

Me: "Really? What do they say?"

Girls: "ooo-ooo-eee-eee-aaa-aaaa!"

Me: "What about goats?"

5: "Nooooo! We don't have goats in E-topia!!!"

Me: "What?? Yes there are... I saw LOTS of goats in Ethiopia!"

5: "No... no we didn't!"

Me: "Um... yes you did. We saw goats EVERYwhere!"

5: "They were in our house??"

Me: "They were in some people's houses... did you have goats at your house in Ethiopia?"

5: "Noooooo!!! They scare me!!"

Me: "Goats don't scare you... remember you saw them at the zoo! You weren't scared."

5: "No! They don't have goats at the zoo!!"

Me: (tired of arguing...with a 5 year old...) "Okay... fine. What do goats say?"

5: "ooooooooOOOOOOOooooooOOOOOOOoooooooo!!"

Me: (huh??)

wait for it...

wait for it...

wait for it...

Me: "OH! Noooo, Not GHOSTS... goats! Like 'maaah maaah maaaaaaaah!'!!"


  1. My husband and I both laughed out loud at this. Thanks, we needed that today. :)

  2. Very funny, even made Andrew laugh. Peanut's contribution was, "Oh yeah! Ghosts scares EVERYBODY!"
