Coconut vs. Polkanut

Go with me on this for a minute. This story won't be funny (nor will it make sense) if you don't first go watch that video above and understand that this is still how she pronounces "polka dot."

Watched it? Good.

Yesterday in the car, Anna asked if we could go on a vacation (Good grief, YES! I am so sick of this snow!). I said she was in luck because we will be going to Hawaii (oh, yeah, Mike, we're coming. Forgot to tell you.) in November and it will be so fun! There will be beaches and ocean and palm trees and coconuts!

At this point, Anna started to bust a gut in the back seat. Complete with a "Ohhh, Mommy, you are so. funny."

"What'd I do?"

"Curtains on the beach?! Noooo! That's silly."

No matter how many ways I tried to explain that "coconuts" and "polkanuts" are NOT the same thing, she'll have none of it.

OK, I realize it's not THAT funny, but more of a you-had-to-be-there situation. I just couldn't believe SHE found it so funny. Really, she barely ever laughs that hard.
