"What on EARTH are you doing?!"
Twin A replied, "He's a cow and I'm a cowboy."
SMH! Of course! Made perfect sense. As I struggled not to laugh, I thought about a popular series of books I read when I was young. Amelia Bedelia was one of my favorite characters. Everything she was told, she took literally.
Children are like that. When I say, "You're going to give me a heart attack", they believe they're literally going to give me a heart attack. Of course, I have three boys so they probably will.
Next time you hear "ride 'em cowboy!", I'll bet it makes you smile.
