Blue Horse

Hiking up the mountain on Sunday.

Me: So if you could choose any horse for yourself, what color would it be?

Little J: Blue.

Me: There are no blue horses.

Little J: You said any color.

Me: Any horse color.

Little J: Ah, now I get it. That’s boring. Can I choose a blue eighteen wheeler?

Me: Truck is not a horse.

Little J: No, it’s not. I like trucks. OK, brown.

Me: Like Vizon?

Little J: Yep. Why is he brown?

Me: Cause his parents passed it on to him.

Little J: You mean they chose it for him?

Me: No, I have brown eyes, so you have brown eyes.

Little J: Oh, now I get it. Mommy horse ate a lot of hay, then pooped it and baby horse came out brown. What should we feed my horse to get a blue one?

And that my friends is my first lesson about birds and bees.
Take your kid out for a walk, you never know what you might learn…

      Thank you Iza. I must put the comments back on his page. Picked him up preK yesterday and the teacher said he cracks them up all the time. He is so funny without even trying.

    Pooping Noah out was holy hell. To this day I compare every one of my poops to him.

    So I’d hold off letting Little J see the Wizard of Oz for a while. That color changing horse might blow his mind!

      Can you believe I have never seen Wizard of Oz? But if there is a color changing horse, I might just have too :)

    So cute! I can’t wait until my conversations evolve into conversations about why my minis can’t have a blue horse…or gasp the birds and bees during which I am sure I will stammer and make it super awkward for all of us! Such an adorable little J you have there and what a lovely walk that must have been.

    If only birth were just the poop. If only. And I am seriously giggling at you never seeing the Wizard of Oz (totally singing the munchkin song now).

    I love little conversations like this.

    I think you could probably get your horse into a blueberry patch just to test the theory.
