Which Half?

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.
