I asked her if she had seen a duck.
"What color was it?"
Since purple is her default color for everything, I told her, "Ducks aren't purple, silly!"
Fastforward a couple of hours. From my bedroom I hear her screeching "Popo guck! Popo guck!"
I come in to see what all the commotion is about. There was Lauren, with eyes popped wide, pointing at the TV. Sure enough there Elmo teaching a duck the specifics on how to quack. And wouldn't you know he was purple... and wearing a sweater.
And so it is.
I stand corrected by none other than the furry, red puppet who is supposed to be a toddler monster. What good is a college degree and 30 years of life experience when with one swift kick in the pants, mother's reasoning takes the back seat to Elmo?
