One night last week, the circus went out for a drive. We toured the countryside and wound up driving down a small two lane road that cut a massive cornfield in two. Hubby decided to turn around and go back the way we came, and in the process, he did a small bit of off-roading past the shoulder before returning to the road itself. Sweet Pea piped up: "Daddy, why are you doing that?" Hubby replied "We're going to let Punkin out here so she can pick some corn, but don't worry, we'll come back for her before it gets dark."
Of course, he was NOT going to do that, but it was amusing at the time.
Fast forward to this afternoon. The circus was on it's way to a family reunion out in Yorkville, IL. The radio in the Expedition is the kind where the song titles scroll across the screen when a song plays. From the back of the truck at one point, Punkin read out loud "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" Sweet Pea's answer was immediate and priceless: "Go. Daddy, pull over and let Punkin out. Punkin, go pick some corn."
Thankfully, Punkin took that in stride because Hubby and I were too busy laughing to say anything else.
