    Pig in the Cow’s Butt

    Post by S

    As part of G’s bedtime routine we read three books before he gets into bed. I had to put some limit on the number of books because G can go on and on with books to avoid going to sleep. “The Big Red Barn” has been in heavy rotation again. Sometimes I pause in the middle of the page and G finishes the sentences. Other times he gives his own commentary on the animals and their activities. It’s his commentary that led to a funny dialog about one page.

    G: “What’s that? (Pointing to the pink utters on the cow)
    Daddy: “Utters. That’s the cow’s utters.”
    G: “Nuh-uh. That’s pig.”
    Daddy: “No bud. That’s the cow’s utters. Milk comes from there.”
    G: “No! That’s pig!”
    Daddy: “Pig?” (confused for a second. Until I realized it was the pink color that made him think it was a pig.)
    G: “Yeah. Pig in the cow’s butt.”
    At this point, I didn’t know where to take the conversation, so I just read the rest of the page quickly and moved on.
    Now every time we get to that page in the book, he points to the cow’s utters and says “That’s pig…pig in the cow’s butt.”

      Fabulous story. What if you just said, “yes G, that is the same color as a pig” and moved on? However, then the story would not be nearly as cute.

      I freakin’ LOVE him! and I love the toddler perspective! It actually DOES look like a pig is coming out of the end of that cow. I mean, look at the size of those things!! 🙂 That’s awesome!
