Cinco de... What?

I think we could host our own "Kids Say The Darnedest Things."  Here's the latest example:

Our town (being rural and agriculturally based) has a large Hispanic population.  So when Cinco de Mayo comes around, our town goes all out- a carnival, a street fair and of course the holiday gets mentioned at the schools.

Well Elizabeth came home on Thursday saying her class had chips and salsa for something that sounds like, "Sinko daymyhole."

I'm sorry, what?

She draws it out: "Sinko day my hole."  Yep, I heard it right the first time.

Amidst the giggles, I tried to get Elizabeth to pronounce the Spanish words correctly.  But she was adamant she was saying it how her teacher said it.  Later, Ryan tried too.  Nope, it doesn't matter that Daddy lived in Mexico for two years as a missionary.  Elizabeth was convinced she was saying it right.

What's a parent to do?

Oh yah, post it on the internet for every one's enjoyment.
(We had taco salad for dinner that night.  Yum!)  Happy Cinco de Mayo!

That is priceless and yeah kids all have a habit of saying the damnest things which is one of the many reasons we love them so.

We had taco salad, too! But that was a fortunate mistake. It wasn't until Luke got home from school that I remembered the big holiday. He begged me to sign him up for the Mexican heritage club so he could do Mexican dancing in the parade with his buddy Matteo. You think they'd accept a blue-eyed blondie into the group?
