    Out of the mouths of babes

    My grand daughters spotted a teddy bear on a shelf and asked me if they could play with it. I explained that it was made out of their great, great grand mothers mink coat by a friend and they could see it but it was old and fragile so the could not play with it because it would fall apart. Mallory, (6) looks at it and says "looks like weasel fur!"

    I told her she couldn't be closer to right!

    It kinda is weasel fur!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    "that was like trying to teach a goldfish how to play basketball over the phone."

    Add babies to everything in explanation. Rasbabies, Strawbabies, Bluebabies. This, werks too.

    Don't have to, she is smart as a whip, no surprise to me, her parents are both exceptional... Not that I am prejudiced.

    If it's just weasel-looking fur at this point, let them play with it! No teddy wants to be that fancy.
