Clean read

Last night, sitting down to read Lucy her bedtime story from her (modern, young-child-appropriate) book of fairytales:

Miss Lu: "And can I pick the story?"
Mommy: "Sure."
Miss Lu: "Ok. And you read it and then tell me if it's sanitized."
Mommy: "Sanitized?"
Miss Lu: "Yes. If it's sanitized, then you tell me how it really happened, the not sanitized story."
Mommy: "Um, ok ..." (thinks: How did she figure out these stories have been changed?)

  1. Hilarious. I can totally imagine Joy saying that in a year or two.
