We don't have any monkeys. Do we???

So, we were sitting down for dinner and I put a plate in front of each kid. One had a regular kid plate, another had a plate with little sections to keep the different foods from touching, and the third was heart-shaped and had Disney princesses on it.

C protests that she DOESN'T WANT the princess plate; she wants some other plate.
I whisper in C's ear, "You have the princess plate because your name means 'princess'. Isn't that special?"
B says, so matter-of-factly, to C, "No it doesn't. It means 'horrid monkey'."

And dinner is just getting started...

("Horrid monkey"? Where does she come up with this?)

Hubby and I had to giggle about it.


  1. Too funny!! So how did C react to that bit of news?

  2. She didn't react at all - just went on about eating her dinner. Unless B gets physical with her, C doesn't usually let B get to her. Which is good because B sure can come up with some stuff to push buttons!

  3. That is so funny. I am glad she has thick skin.
