The Innocence Of The Innocent

The greatest thing about being around little kids is that you never know what will come out of their mouths! Case in point:

Sunday evening before I left for work, Collin and his kids came over. We had nachos and watched a couple of episodes of "Dead Like Me." After a while, Jordyn asked if she could color. I have a Lion King coloring book & markers on hand for just such emergencies. She was giving all her energy to coloring in a picture of Zazu, the bird who is kind of Mufasa's right hand man. After she finished coloring him, she showed him to Collin & me.

"Look at the bird! I colored his feathers blue cuz they're supposed to be blue and his pecker is yellow."

"Beak, sweetie. It's called a beak," Collin answered with an incredibly straight face.

"Oh. His beak is yellow." And she walked off. Then, and only then, did we allow ourselves to properly crack up.
