confession: things i said to my kids today

While playing cards with Miles...

Miles: I need a three of hearts.
Me: What? Oh. It sounded like you said "three of farts"
Miles: hee-hee
Me: What if you said you needed a King of Farts?

While trying to start reading The House on Pooh Corner...

Avery: I don't want to read that. All I think of is poop when I hear it.
Me: What if all the dogs in the neighborhood always pooped on our corner. Then WE would live in The House on Poo Corner.

So, there. I never said I was a perfect Mom, did I? By the way, I did say other things, too. Good things.

(And I read the book anyway. And we liked it so far.)

I wonder if you would say such things if you had all girls!

Isn't there a song about the King of Hearts? You could always sing that to them, of course with the lyrics changed to King of Farts...

After thinkin about this throughout the day, I'm wondering if the lyrics are actually "Queen of Hearts" instead of King...
Anybody know what I'm talking about?
