Gimme a Clue

Mags: "Guess what this is, Mama?"
Me: (breaking into a sweat) "Umm...let me see. A platypus?"
Mags: "Nope."
Me: (heart racing) "I could have sworn it looked like Perry. Can you give me a clue?"
Mags: "Nope. It's not Perry."
Me: "I need a clue, please."
Mags: "I just gave you's not Perry."
Me: "I need another one." ( do my kids forget how much I stink at this?)
Mags: "Well...he's PLAID. And he's in a book we read at school."
Me: "Oooooh! Hmmm. Let me think. (I should have read that newsletter more carefully.)
Mags: (long, dramatic sigh) "Okay. I'll give you a pass on this one cause those big kids you teach have been testing your brain." 

"It's a PLAIDypus."
I just love Kindergarten.
