House Pets ...
My daughter Neva was watching television one morning when a new show called Dumb Bunnies came on. I had never heard of it before but was certain, with such a title, it wasn't appropriate for my 3 1/2-year-old who still didn't have the "D" word in her vocabulary. So I picked up the remote control to change the channel.
"No, Mommy!" came the protest. "I want this one!"
"I will find something else, Neva, but you're not watching 'Dumb Bunnies'." I said, hoping she wouldn't learn the word as I used it.
"No! I want to watch the Dust Bunnies!"
Hmm... come to think of it, I'm not sure I'm happy she's learned that term either.
