Isabella (she’s 7) is calling our puppy dog, Merlin.
Iz: Merlin… Merliiin… There’s my Dumbo. There he is!
Me: Why do you call him “Dumbo?” He’s not fat.
Iz: Daddy, it’s because he has big floppy ears.
Me: Oh… But, you call me “Dumbo, too.” And, I don’t have big ears.
She scoops him up and leaves the room without saying a word.
Me: Honey… Isabella! Honey…….. I don’t have big ears.
Oh, I get it.
