From the Mouths of Children

8 Feb

Jaden walks up to ask me for advice on her math homework.  She is having a hard time understanding a word problem involving the addition of trees.

Jaden: “Mommy, what is a maple tree?”  “…and what is a bitch tree?”

Me: (?!?!?!)  “What was that, sweetie?”

Jaden: “What is a maple tree and what is a bitch tree?”

Mommy:  “Sweetheart, that says birch tree.  Biiiirrrch.  There’s an ‘R’ in that word.”

Jaden: “Oh.”  “Well, what is it?”
