Imagine this....

There is a three year old little boy that I watch and he likes to help me cook. I was moving the 20lb Tom Turkey (I call all our Turkey's Tom) from the big freezer to the kitchen freezer. 20lbs seems to get heavier as I get older. Anyway....as I picked up the TURKEY my little helper said "That's a big CHICKEN!"

I laughed and said, "This is the Tom Turkey that we will be having for Thanksgiving.

He said, "I like CHICKEN!"

So I explained all about Thanksgiving and TURKEY and I'm just talking my fool head off when my little helper quietly asked, "Who's Tom?"

That is a really funny story. It made me think of "Tom, Tom the Turkey will be home soon..."

I have children 5, 10, and 12. I wish I had written down all the funny things they said. Now that I have a blog I am trying to record funny moments.

I'm with you on the flu shots as well. We have had them since the 90s. We get colds, but avoid the fluish symptoms...well worth the inconvenience of a shot.

I signed on to follow you. Come by and say hi!

Hi, it's me again. This may sound odd, but I have a post up called "One Word Answers." Stop by and check it out. I found it on someone's blog when I was stuck for a post idea.
