And, I Have a Talking Donkey

posted by Momo Fali on August 28, 2009

My son came home from school today and as we reviewed some first grade papers I said, “Tell me about your day, buddy. What did everyone bring for show and tell?”

He replied, “Well, some people brought stuffed dogs, and a kid brought Lightning McQueen and one girl brought a doll.”

“Wow. That sounds like some cool stuff. What else did people share?”

He jumped with excitement, “Oh! One kid brought a great, big yogurt!”

“A big yogurt?”

“Yeah! Its name was Shrek.”

    You can buy Shrek flavoured yogurt here. Not that I have …. but my children want me too.

    He's very insightful. There will probably be a Shrek yogurt when the next movie comes out.

    I swear, you need to write a book of all these amazing things he says. This one is great! It's up there with having "very close veins" (they're very close to the skin)
