Little Froggy

“Mama, we went outside to get the paper and we saw a
frog!!”

I was intrigued and impressed.

[Despite being sound asleep when I received this news.]

An amphibian?

In my front yard?

[Which is nowhere near a creek.]

A frog?

We’re in the middle of a drought!!

How wondrous!!

“Where was the frog, Roo?” I asked.


“Outside!!” she exclaimed.


[Oh, the vagueness of toddlers!]


She led me out to the breakfast table and K served me a plate of eggs.

[Because he is a Golden God.]

“So you guys saw a frog?” I asked with uncharacteristic morning enthusiasm.

“What?” K said, clearly confused.

“Roo said that you guys saw a frog when you went out to get the paper. Where was it?”


K looked puzzled for a second and then something clicked.


“Rooster,” K said, "it was a little FOGGY outside.”


[Ba dum bum CHA!]


Oy. Soon I'll be playing the Catskills...

If you were to hear my daughter w/ her speech delays talk w/o a translator, you'd swear she cusses like a sailor.

Good times...

Smiling Mom said...

Same thing, different word down in my neck of the world today. I posted about it too!

Mama DB said...

Hehe. I love it when kids do that! And they go along with all of the questioning too!

This post did transport me back to my childhood though. Zoom! Just like that.

I grew up in Houston and just after the rain, we would get a bunch of frogs in our ditch. After about a week, you could scrape the dried up flattened frog bodies from the street and use them for bases in games of kickball.

I know, I'm making this about me, but you were the one that slapped me with this memory.

Sadie said...

Thank Jehovah it was only a fog. I was expecting something uber gross . . . like green poop or something. I'm a seriously depraved individual.

C'mon. It can't always be this funny in your house...

Hee hee... :)

Queen Karana said...

Funny! My brothers and I used to always joke that it was "froggy" out every time we had a good amount of fog.

Jenifer said...

We had a discussion this morning about bark (dog vs tree) life with kids can be very funny sometimes.

Super B's Mom said...

Aw man!! What a letdown! :)

Too funny!

I thought the Rooster was gearing up for a gigantic "APRIL FOOL'S"!

Shannon said...

It's so easy to get foggy and froggy mixed up.

In the song, "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" I used to sing "then one froggy Christmas night, Santa came to say...." I was stunned when my parents finally told me it was "then one FOGGY Christmas night". I haven't been the same since.

That Rooster...TOO CUTE!

Mimi said...

Ha. I saw 'frog' here too this morning: a grey mist rising off the giant snowbanks. Sigh. Is it spring yet?

furiousBall said...

I can't wait for the froggy weather this summer, my son loves catching them in my backyard

Magpie said...

On the contrary. I think K and the Roo are going to be playing the Catskills.

Paige said...

Man I love kids.

NotSoSage said...

Awesome. I was thinking you might be watching out for the remaining nine plagues...

Amanda said...

Ha! Briar panicked this morning at the sight of the fog, "Dad! Dad! We cannot see the road. We cannot see, we cannot go. All that air is getting up in there!"

Bon said...

i am embarrassed to admit that i was probably about seven (or at least old enough to remember my cringing embarrassment) when i discovered that people weren't saying it was froggy outside. duh. so i, um, feel you.

If we are fighting then I'm totally winning.
