Apparently, my three-year-old was at preschool the other day and was having a conversation with his teacher when he announced, "My mommy is so happy!"
"Why is your mommy so happy?" she inquired.
"Because she's married!" he says.
The teacher then went on to ask what his mother's name was, to which he replied, "Babe!"
The teacher got a good chuckle out of that, as did both my wife and I. Apparently I call my wife that far too much in the presence of my children. My older kids are unphased by it, but it seems I've confused my youngest. Very funny.
(As a side query, just how exactly did the word "babe" come to mean an attractive young female?!)
