We were driving to school the other day, and Monkey was clearly just off-the-wall goofy. She spent most of the ride cracking herself up, making odd noises.
On the final stretch to her preschool, the road has a bunch of stop signs. We're at the first of these and this happened:
Monkey: MOM!! Did you SEE THAT?!
Me: Uh... did I see what?
Monkey: Over there-- it's a SHEEP.
Me: Uh... I don't see a sheep, hon.
Monkey: <deep belly chuckle>
We drive on.
The next stop sign takes slightly longer, as there are train tracks and I don't accelerate quickly because it's a rough crossing. Thus, I had stopped, and was just starting to go...
Me: Wha...??? What is THAT about??
Monkey (laughing hysterically): BAAAAAA. I'M A SHEEEEEEEP... THAT JUST GOT RUN OVER BY THE CAR. BAAAAAA.
Caught off guard, I actually snort laughed.
The BEST part??
She relayed this story to her father, and ALMOST had him convinced that she truly DID see a sheep on the side of the railroad tracks on our way to school. And, that I ALMOST hit it.
