A Shortage of Pumpkins?!

A Conversation Between a Super Hip Mom (HA!) and Her Hilarious Daughter

(Scene:  In the car, cruising home from a trip to Target.)

Lilly:  I'm really, really worried.

Mama Leisha:  Oh dear!  What are you worried about?

Lilly:  I'm really worried that there won't be any pumpkins for Halloween.

Mama Leisha:  There are plenty of pumpkins everywhere, Lil.  Why on earth would you be worried about a thing like that?!

Lilly:  Well...that man on the radio said something about the SMASHING PUMPKINS and I got really worried that someone out there in the world is smashing all the pumpkins.  And I really, really wanted to have one for Halloween.

Mama Leisha (giggling):  Lilly, "The Smashing Pumpkins" is the name of a group of people who play music.  LOUD music.  That's what they call their band.  I promise you, you have nothing to worry about!

Lilly:  Oh...  Thank goodness!

It's OCTOBER!  Hope your day is a SMASH!

  16. It's funny how kids misconceive ideas from what they hear out of ignorance. I hope y'all got a pumpkin at Target to put Miss Lilly's mind at ease. lol Thanks for linking up with Wayback Wednesday, my dear!
