What Makes Eli Laugh

During our story time before bed, Eli came upon a picture of a cow in his book.
Pointing to the cow's udders he exclaimed, "eww, yucky, that's gross!"

I explained they were the cows bobbas, not gross and that's where milk comes from.
He paused at this thought for a moment, really mulling it over in his head.

Let out the shrillest laughter that almost set me into my own uncontrollable laughter...then stated, 
"that's SILLY!"

Face of disbelief!

I think it is always surprising when our children grasp things differently than we expect...everyday things we think don't give a thought to.

Really taking it in.

And had to tell daddy about it...
"That's where milk comes from, daddy!"

For him this is a hard thought to wrap his brain around since he nursed for 27 mos...

Makes me giggle.


  1. Aw, sweet boy! I love seeing life from their point of view :)

  2. That is too funny--the kind of things that we find so commonplace they can't even believe it's true!

  3. Moments like those are what keep me going on a rough day!! :)


I love comments...
