The Girl Child cannot clarify

Overheard in the house:

Boy Child: Arrh-arrh.

Mamma: Girl Child, what does "arrh-arrh" mean?

Girl Child: I don't know, Mamma. Usually, I understand everything he says, but on this point, I am not clear.

It just seems like way too grownup a sentence structure. She's only 4.5.

And by the way, after that, just to preserve the exchange, we agreed that we were going to go to Costco and she said:

GC: If we're going to Costco, I'm going Commando*!

BC: Mando [nodding his head for emphasis and in approval]

These kids are clearly spending too much time together.

*I have told her that Commando means going out without underwear on. Just in case you were not aware of the expression.

Unfortunately, I had a mouthful of water when I read this. I should know better than to read your Girl Child posts while drinking!
I'm sure I'll remember this next time I go to Costco, too.

I knew you were a cool father...I just knew it.

Tell GC to be careful...Costco frowns on that when you get older...and are a guy.
