Last week I started reading what may be my all-time favorite book to the girls – Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. The memories I have reading that book over and over and over again. *sigh*
At one point in the first few chapters there is mention of a mule. Ellie interrupts my reading, “Excuse me, Mommy, what is a mule?” “It’s half horse, half donkey, Ellie.” “What half do you think is the horse and what half do you think is the donkey, Mommy?” Using every ounce of restraint I have, I respond, “I don’t know, Ellie. What do you think?” Very serious now, she replied, “I think the front half is the horse and the back half is the donkey.”
That’s my girl.
