Deep Reflections on Memorial Day

I hope you all had a fantastic Memorial day. I’m so thankful for all of the men and women who have served and sacrificed for our country. Leading up to the day, my four year old had a very serious question – not about those who have served – but about another Memorial Day necessity. Hot Dogs. It went something like this:

Abby: Hey Mom, can I ask you a question?
Mom: Sure
Abby: Does poop become hot dogs?
Mom: Um, no. it doesn’t.
Abby: What becomes a hot dog?
Mom: A cow does.
Mom: Yep. Cows become hot dogs. Then we can eat them to be healthy and strong.
Abby: Mom, if you tell me again that a cow becomes a hot dog, then I’m not eating another hot dog for 20 years!

Now, does anyone else find it wierd that she was willing to eat a hot dog when she thought it was poop but not when it was a cow?!?
