Are You Mumbling or am I Going Deaf?

If you are a mom you can relate to this--you have a head full of stuff you're thinking about and your child begins speaking something to you out of the blue that is utterly incomprehensible.  Anyway, it seems to be happening a lot to me lately.  Here are some recent misunderstandings that have resulted in a wonderful belly-laugh.
 
What I heard:
"Did you know there are rare legos dipped in coffee?"
What he actually said:
"Did you know there are rare legos that are Egyptian coffins?"

What I heard:
"I couldn't hear you because I was playing in the meadow."
What he actually said:
"I couldn't hear you because of the clinking of the metal."

What I heard:
"Have you seen my barfing dog?"
What he actually said:
"Have you seen my barking dog?"

  1. I have been having this same problem lately. Maybe there is something floating around in the air clogging up our ears?
