Money

We hosted Thanksgiving this year for my parents and my sister-in-law. Gorgeous Wife did a great job on the meal, and I suppose I did a reasonably okay job watching kids while she made it. The turkey, in particular, won high praise from all.

After the meal, my son went to bed, and the rest of us went downstairs to chat. At one point, Gorgeous Wife pointed to my mom and asked my daughter, “Who's that?” “'Amma,” she responded, which is about as close as she gets to the word “grandma” right now. Then Gorgeous Wife pointed at my dad and asked, “Who's that?” We expected something like “'Ampa,” but instead, without any hesitation, she said, “Money.” Several more trials indicated that she clearly believes that her grandfather is “Money.”

Watch out, Dad.

Hahaha, that is so funny!!! and cute, of course.

I know I am a total stranger, so you're probably wondering how I happened upon your site. I Googled "cleverly disguised as an adult" to get the perfect T-shirt for my boyfriend for Christmas, and your site showed up in the Google results, and I read the first blog I saw, and just had to let you know that someone out there thought that that incident was hilarious! :D
