Want Some Plum Pudding With That?

Chicklet5, trying to tell a grown-up friend about a DVD we had from the library, turned to me and asked:

"Is it Princess Plumber...or Princess the Plum?"

Me, mentally sorting it out:

"Do you mean the Sugar Plum Fairy??"

That's what she meant.

Goodness, that one made me laugh! It never ceases to amaze me what jumbled up things come out of kids' mouths, but it's always funny. After we had been studying the Exodus from Egypt, my son (4 at the time) looked at me and said, 'Mom, are scorpions worse than the Pharaoh?' In his mind, there was nothing worse than a scorpion (we were having a problem with them being in the house at the time), and he was trying to figure out just how hard Pharaoh's heart was. :)

Yes, Brea does rhyme with Ree. I think you might be the first person to see it and pronounce it the right way. You made my day! :)
