Something Smells Funny

Last summer Annie and I were in the car, headed back to the city from a day at the barn. Just as I was lifting my arm to see if, after hours of riding, I smelled good enough to stop by the local pizza joint with confidence, Annie asked a random question:

"Mommy, do turkeys fly?"

Just then I sniffed... under my arm.

Annie laughed.

"Mom!" she shrieked, “DO YOU THINK YOU’LL GET THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION BY SMELLING UNDER YOUR ARM?"

She continued jokingly, and in a comical and deep voice she said, "OH MIGHTY ARMPIT, PLEASE TELL ME, DO TURKEYS FLY?"

We both laughed hysterically.

Tonight Annie and I sat on the sofa and talked. Suddenly she asked a random question:

"Mommy, are cavemen real?"

I didn’t have an answer right away because I wasn’t sure if she meant, WERE they real, or are they in existence TODAY.

I looked at her for a moment. She stared back at me expressionless and then, without missing a beat, she lifted up her arm… and took a whiff.

You always share with us the wonders of children, too often glossed over in our fast paced world. Thank you for helping ME stop to see the wonder in my own child.
