Horse's Behind

Prologue: In telling this story, I want inform our readers that Randi and I face our ups-and-down in our relationship as the stresses of life pull on us just like many of you. All in all we still do our best to be Christ-like as we love and respect each other. This is a short vignette when we were a little testy with each other and ended up laughing the whole thing away.

One day Randi and I were in a ill mood towards each other over some dispute. Although Randi might have the reason for this instance on the tip of her tongue, I cannot for the life of me remember what it was. We were playing with the boys, and Parks started playing with his Little People farmyard animals. At this point in time, the boys were pointing at objects and wanting us to them the name of it. We were going along fine, naming the cow, the chicken, the goat, etc. He picked his horse and said "'dis." I replied back "horse," and he mimicked back with his hand the sign language for horse. Next, the horse's tail (see picture above) caught his attention and he again asked "'dis?" Mommy informed him "that's the horse's behind." Adding even more, she chimed in with all her wit that "daddy is a horse's behind."

Parks looked at the horse's backside and then looked at me with the most bewildering look we had ever seen. He then pointed back at the horse's behind and confirmed "da-da."
