The Mouths of Babes


The other day I was doing my Dance Dance Revolution exercise routine in the living room when Daphne came in. (She gets very entranced watching the Japanese animation characters dance in the background.) As I switched from one song to another, the background dancer dudes in suits turned into a couple of background dancer girls. "Look Mommy!" said Daphne, "The daddies are gone!" "Where did they go?" I asked mindlessly, trying not to mess up my rhythm. "Oh. They went to work." she said. It made me laugh so hard that I failed the song. But I love that she called them daddies and that it made perfect sense to her that those guys in suits must have gone to work. That's what daddies do!

Because we all know that Big Daddy goes to work in a white leisure suit unbuttoned all the way. With white platform shoes.

That is just cute! I love the things kids say. In this case it just makes perfect sense.

The daddys should be at work. That is their job.

So we can stay home and dance.

Mason's uncle wants to stay at home (not necessarily to take care of the kids) and have his wife work so Mason was confused because the dad's are supposed to work.
