“Raccoons are nocturnal,” I said. “That means, they usually only come out at night.”
Emilia thought about that. “Like skunks?”
“Yep. Skunks are nocturnal, too.”
“Because Daddy works at night. You always say, Daddy works so late, we only see him at night! So, Daddy’s nocturnal! LIKE A SKUNK.”
Indeed, my love. Indeed.
This week at the totally awesome Living Well Mom Moments site, you could win an awesome prize pack and a chance at $5000 if you upload a video or submit a written entry about the darndest things your kids have said. (Next week, the topic will be something new, so stay tuned.)
(Disclosure – I’m a spokesperson for this. So that’s my dorky mug on that video at the site. Go, watch, laugh.)
