Innocence of childhood

Kylee's tummy has been bothering her off and on the last two days and today when she told me her tummy was hurting again I replied, "You must have a little stomach bug." She looked at me like I was nuts and said, "What's a stomach bug?" As I began to explain our pun on words she quickly said, "Like when we have butterflies in our tummy" It is just amazing how fast kids pick up on stuff. We explained this phrase to her after some of the rides at Hershey Park and after I said it a few weeks ago on our way to church when I was about to start my new calling ("Mom, you can't have butterflies in your tummy...that's silly). She now understands it...I think, and has begun using the phrase herself. I just love this girl to death and have so much fun chatting with her every day.
