The Cow Queen for the

The prince has been in rare form with his Tiny Talk lately. Here is just a sampling of the funny things:

We were working on his Latin assignment (watch for the review on this one). The directions said "circle yes or no"  The question was "sunt means there are".
Prince: I'm just going to circle both. 
Me: No, you can't do that. It is either "yes" or "no". 
Prince: Is there a "not really sure?"

We were on the way to church, and the princess asked if I knew any monkey songs. The closest I could come to a monkey song was "10 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed." (In hindsight, I should have made it 5 Little Monkeys) We I sang through all the verses. As I got to the last few monkeys, I would stop to let the children say what the doctor said. The last monkey to fall of the bed became the prince's turn to be the doctor:

Me: Mama called the doctor and the doctor said ...
Prince: I'm tired of you calling me all the time.
Prince: ... and how do you get Monkey blood out of the carpet?

As we were talking about Veteran's Day, the prince asked who we knew who were veterans. We listed a few. He knew that Prince Charming's dad was in the Army. He asked about my dad. 

Me: He was in the Reserves.
Prince: What are the Reserves?
Me: They train people to be like people in the Army and keep them ready. If they don't have enough Army people, they call the Reserves to help.
Prince: So, he just sat around playing video games until they called?
Me: No, they didn't have video games back then. He was farming.
Later that night as he was preparing to brush his teeth...
Prince: So what do the "preserves" do?

I'm linking to Tiny Talk Tuesday so you can see what other cute things the children are saying. 

The grass is green. It’s good to be

    Visiting you from Tiny Talk. I like your blog! It is very cute. I like the fun things they kids are saying, especially about the "preserves".

    MONKEY BLOOD! That kid must get his sense of humor from me!
    P.S. I'm pretty sure I learned a monkey song from you or Mama B..."I went to the animal fair..." What? Was it okay to teach me violent songs, but not your own children?
