Caelism of the Day

For Graham's birthday, he received a Mickey Mouse placemat with a map of the United States to catch the buckets of food that don't make it into his mouth or hair.  Today, as we were eating our honeycrisp apple for dessert, we had a little geography lesson.

"Cael, we live here in Iowa.  Papa, Sarah and Amy all live here, but Bamma and Bampa live waaaay over here in Washington." 

"Do they do it two times?"

"Do they do what two times?"

"In the morning and before bedtime?"

"What are you talking about?"

"Washing their tongues.  Do they do it twice?"

"No, Cael.  They live in Washing-TON, not Washing-TONGUE." 

"Oh, okay.  Better luck next time, Mommy."


  1. Ha Ha. so funny. I will have to tell that one to my big boys!

  2. Heidi- Bet you didn't know you lived in Washingtongue! Maybe that's the traditional Native American pronunciation... :)


Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
