The other day Mr. Ashley was playing with the boys in the driveway when Big Kid turned to him and said, "little kid is such a pussy."
Mr. Ashley almost fell over dead from shock.
"What?" He seemed genuinely confused.
Mr. Ashley lowered his voice to a whisper. "Do you know that word is slang for a woman's private area?"
Big Kid immediately paled and began stuttering. "No! Oh, I--I, no! No! I thought it meant 'fraidy cat!"
"Let's just pretend it never happened, okay?" My husband offered.
They both came in looking sheepish and aghast. Mr. Ashley pulled me into the bathroom to relay the story back to me and I had to stay in there for a few extra minutes so that no one would witness my hysterical laughter.
Thankfully, little kid missed the whole exchange.
