That is what the kids came running into my room this morning to tell me.
Apparently there is a dead cow in the backyard.
Here is how the conversation went:
Nolan: "Mommy, I've got some bad news for you."
Nolan: "There is a dead cow in the backyard or something. It's covered with snow."
Me: "Really? A dead cow?"
Nolan: "Yeah, it's just laying there in the backyard...you gotta come and see! And I'm not kidding!"
and then Gideon ran in...
Gideon: "Mommy, did Nolan tell you about the dead cow?"
Gideon: "Where did you get a dead cow?"
Me: "I'm thinking it's not a dead cow, silly."
and Haddon ran in....
Haddon: "Mommy! Mommy! The cow is maybe dead or sleeping!"
It's always nice to start your morning with a good laugh!
Here is the 'dead cow':
Oh, and did I mention that we have SNOW!?! This is going to be an interesting winter...I can feel it already!
