Holy Cow!

On a recent visit with Pumpkin’s grandmother, “Mimi,” we drove the car past the scene of an accident where there were several fire engines and ambulances.   Mimi said, “holy cow!” and Pumpkin looked all around and said, “where’s the cow?”  She heard us all laughing and it must have registered in her mind that it was funny because a few more times that weekend she looked around with a big smile on her face and asked, “where’s the cow?” 🙂  It’s funny how many expressions we use without thinking about the actual meaning of the words until there’s a two year old listening.
