While we were at the pool on Opening Day this weekend, Pumpkin Pie ran into a friend from his T-Ball team. Because I managed to sunburn my shoulders the day before on a field trip with Pickles, I was sitting in the shade. I was close enough to see that he was not in trouble, but far enough that I couldn’t hear what he was saying. He ran over to me to check in.
Pumpkin Pie: Mom! I saw Jack from Baseball!
Me: I saw him come in. Did you two play together?
Pumpkin Pie: Yes. I asked him what the difference was between roast beef and pea soup.
Me: Oh, that’s nice. But kind of a weird thing to ask him. What is the difference between roast beef and pea soup, anyway?
Pumpkin Pie: Anyone can roast beef, it takes someone special to pee soup.
You’ll have to trust me that he totally nailed the timing on that one. I almost peed soup myself.
