Pumpkin Bee

"Okay, it's time to do our craft project, guys.  I drew a pumpkin on a paper and you can color it in however you like.  Then we'll cut out the shape of the face you want to 'carve' out of the pumpkin and we'll put paper on the back that will show through." 


"It's just a fun little project, Cael.  I think it will look cool when we're done."

"But it doesn't look like a pumpkin, Mommy.  It looks like an apple."

"I don't think so.  An apple doesn't have these lines here.  See?"

"I still think it looks like an apple.  I'm gonna write 'pumpkin' next to it so people will know it's a pumpkin."

Rather than an orange, carved apple with a face.  Got it.

"Okay, that's fine.  Do you know how to write that word?"

"Can you tell me the letters and I will write them?"

"Sure.  P-U-M-P-K-I-N."

"That's not right."

"Yes it is."

"No, it's not."

"I've been writing for a lot of years, Cael, and I promise that is how to spell pumpkin."

"It's spelled "P-I-M-P."

"Yikes.  That spells 'pimp', and it's kind of a naughty word."

"No it's not.  Pimp is the same thing as pumpkin.  I'm gonna color my pimp and then I'm gonna draw a face on my pimp.  Then you cut the face off of my pimp, right Mommy?  And then we put paper on the back of the pimp and it looks neat?  For Halloween?"

"Sure, Cael."  Maybe we can find some gold necklaces for it, too. 


  1. LOL love it! Gotta love the things kids say... gotta laugh too, what else can we do! :-P


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