    Every night, my daughters (4) always quiz me about what I will be doing after I put them to bed. They have a bit of a speech issue, but I always think it's too cute to correct them when they tell me to make sure I put the "dickens" to bed (ie, close the coop & pen doors) so that the "boxes" don't get them. Then they go on to warn me that the "boxes" live in the "twees," so I need to MAKE SURE I put the "dickens" to bed. [​IMG]

    Not sure if anyone else will find this cute or humorous, but I had to share [​IMG]

    My husband's bright idea - he wants to put a chicken in a box in the front yard and run inside saying, Quick! Quick! There's a chicken-eating box outside! and see what the girls say [​IMG]
