This morning while I was making pancakes I was favoring the girls with my version of Jan and Dean's hit Little Old Lady from Pasadena. When I got to the line, "she's gonna get a ticket now sooner or later 'cause she can't keep her foot off the accelerator," Camille asks, "What's an elligator?" I figured out she meant accelerator and told her that it was another word for the gas petal in the car because it's what makes the car go faster.
"I want one of those!" she exclaimed. Fortunately for me, she was satisfied when I told her she could get one when she was old enough to drive!
Watch out world...only 12 more years until she gets her accelerator!
