Definitions

Fiona just defined the word "knuckles" for me. She said that baby pigs drink milk from their mommy's knuckles. This gets even better when you realize that one of her favorite songs of late has been the Jim Gill's song "Knuckles Knees" from the album Jim Gill Sings Do Re Mi on his Toe Leg Knee in which "knuckles" is pretty much every other word. I don't have the heart to correct her definition.

Makes sense to me!

We've been reading a lot of Peanuts cartoons lately, and there's a whole, kind of bizarre series where Charlie Brown wakes up early one morning and instead of seeing the sun coming up, sees a giant baseball. Iris calls that a "baseballrise".

And my 3yo son told me those are pickles! (Actually, he was referring to his own, not a pig's, but pickles they were anyway :^)
