Lucy got a new set of Little People® farm animals for Christmas – horses, sheep, cows, and so on. The pigs in particular caused a bit of drama for her.
CJ and Lucy were playing with the new animals when Lucy pointed at the pigs and announced, “Mommy, money pigs.”
Perplexed, CJ asked, “Money pigs? Do you mean ‘muddy’ pigs?” The pigs were, well – pigs. They had some mud on them – painted, of course – because that’s just what pigs do.
Lucy, with a characteristically exaggerated head nod and a clear tone of finality, “Yes.” Then, to the pigs, “Go wash, pigs!” When the pigs didn’t immediately jump up and run to the sink, she turned to CJ and asked, “Mommy, go wash pigs, please.”
