Ayay, her Tita and I were walking downtown the other day when we passed a shop with a Laughing Buddha statue in the window.
“Mommy! We have one of those!” Ayay dramatically stated in her loud 4-year-old voice.
“You’re right, we do,” I responded as we continued walking past the door of the shop.
Still in loud-4-year-old-voice-mode, now filled with excitement and glee, Ayay blared, “It’s a BOOOOOTY!”
The owner of the store was standing in the doorway. With a look of surprise and amusement he turned to us, “A booty?”
“A Booo-DA. It’s a Booo-DA,” I said to Ayay.
Kids say the darndest things don’t they?
