Carousel Poles

Tonight, as we were talking at dinner, this was the conversation:

Me: K, what do you want to have for your birthday?

K: Pink cake. With pink frosting. and those things that go up and down on the merry-go-round.

Me: What?

K: Cake. with those things that go up and down on the merry go round.

Me: Oh, the horses?

K: No, the things that go up and down on the merry go round?

(At this point, she is getting frustrated because I don't understand her)

Me: The things the horses are attached to?

K: yes. they go up and down.

Me: Oh, the poles. You want the poles from a merry-go-round on your cake?

C: Yea, mom, don't you know, the poles that are with the horses on the merry-go-round.

K: And it needs to be pink, with Princesses too.

Me: Um, Okay, I'll see what I can do.

It took me about 2 or 3 hours to figure out she wants candles on her pink cake with her Princesses. Smart girl. She didn't know what they were called, but she knew what to compare them to. Especially the ones with the stripes running diagonally down the pole - looks just like candles.

Don't you just love those moments where the kids are like, "C'mon, Mom!" And you have no clue what's going on. ;o)

That is so funny! I bet you'll be calling them carousel poles in your family from now on. She's such a cutie!
