The broad hippo

broad_hippo.pngYesterday I was reading a book to my kids and came across “the broad hippopotamus.”  I asked my 6 year old son what a broad hippo is.  It went something like this:

Me: What is a broad hippo?

6 year old boy: A hippo with bras?

after a few seconds for us to digest it, we all laughed for a while.  I grew up with all boys (my sisters are quite a bit younger, and were still very young when I moved out of the house), so I would have never thought about a hippo with bras!  Alas, my son is with mom and three sisters all day – he’s growing up quite a bit different than I did!
