The Things Children Say

Although, I want to sink into the ground after some of things my kids say, I admit that as a small child I probably managed to put my mother in one of those situations more effectively than my kids have yet done to me. When I was three or so, my favorite flower was Amaryllis belladonna, which grew all over California where we lived. Amaryllis belladonna has a more common name though, that was the one my mother had unthinkingly told me and she certainly did regret it, when in my loud, carrying child's voice I exclaimed excitedly while riding on a public bus, "Mama, look at all those naked ladies!"
