Funny Emma

Today Emma said the funniest thing.
To preface, my kids are always asking how to make different colors using the crayon colors they have.  In our house crayons are broken, and subsequently thrown out, on a daily basis.  Thus the lack of needed colors and the never ending question that begins, "Mom, how do you make (insert color)?"
I, being the great teacher that I am, or laziest mom ever, always ask them in return, "I don't know, how do you make (insert color)?"  Then they either figure it out or determine that it cannot be made.
So now we come to the funny part.  To get the full effect, you need to hear her tiny little voice, with her tiny little lisp, in your head.

(only recent picture of Emma)
Emma:  "Mom, how do you make yellow?"
Mom:  "I don't know, how do you make yellow?"
Emma:  "Umm, I don't know.  Oh wait, you can't !!!"
Mom:  "And why not?"
Emma:  "Because it's a church color!"
It took me a minute to process what she meant by that.  Then I laughed and laughed and laughed!!!
