What are galoshes to you?

What's in a name? Apparently, a lot more than I bargained for.

Rebekah & I were on the way to preschool this week and listening to her Kindermusik CD. One of the songs is about things we wear in the rain and bad weather. It talked about where you put a coat, hat, gloves, then galoshes. I asked Rebekah if she knew what galoshes were.

Her answer? "Is it a bad manners for stupid?" Hmmm...let me tell you about bad manners. I told her once to stop saying stupid and instead of saying it's a bad word, I told her it's bad manners. Good thing! Anytime she hears someone say stupid (any age, any where), she will announce to them in a high volume way, "Stupid is a bad manners word."

I'm not sure how she equated galoshes with stupid, but she did. I explained the galoshes are really rain boots, like her pink kitty cat rain boots.

"Ahhhh," Rebekah answers, "like my kitty cat boots. Those are galoshes."

That made me remember a photo taken a couple weeks ago. She was in full soccer uniform and I needed to run a quick errand. Afraid of being left at home, she grabbed the first shoes she found....the pink kitty cat galoshes. She put them on and was so stinkin' cute, I had to have a photo.
