Oh My!

Our family was in the car this week going to do an errand.  I was asking the girls about their field trips for school.  The wee-est one had gone to the zoo and was really looking forward to seeing the snowy owls.  In fact, she was looking forward to seeing the snowy owls so much that she asked me to make a snowy owl for her to take to the zoo.

So I did.  We scounged up some leftover yarn and made an owl in about 2 hours – which included finding the button eyes and the yarn.

But back to the ride in the car (because otherwise my title doesn’t make much sense).  I asked the wee-est one if she was going to see lions.  “Yes.”  Are you going to see bears?  “Yes, I’ll see Trouble.  That’s the bear’s name, Mom.”

“So, you’ll see Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!”

“Mom… I don’t know what an ‘Oh My’ is.”

Oh dear… I think she’s just figured out how to do perfect delivery of a joke.  I think I’m in trouble.
