I Do Not Think That Means What You Think It Means...

During a diaper change of the littlest (a boy), his two year old sister came up and said, "Oh look at his cute little totem!" I was torn as to whether or not I should mention that that word really starts with an "s" or whether "totem" would cause me less embarrassment later on. Either way the poor boy is doomed, but at least I can pretend not to know what she's talking about.

Later, my oldest said, "Does submarine messaging really work?"

"Submarine messaging?" I was imagining sonar or flashing lights or something of the sort.

"You know, submarine messaging -- when you whisper something over and over into some one's ear while they are sleeping."

I did correct that misspoken word, but don't imagine for a moment that I won't forever after think about hidden meanings as being submarine messages instead of subliminal ones.
