cute or stupid
As I was getting the girls out of the car this afternoon, Lola kept uncharacteristically staring at me. "Why do you keep looking at me?" I asked.
"Because you're as stupid as a fruit face pancake."
Not sure I'd heard that correctly, I asked, "What did you just say?"
"I SAID because you're as cute as a fruit face pancake."
"I thought she said stupid," offered Iris critically.
Later, Iris asked Lola, "Why did you say she was as cute as a fruit face pancake?"
"Because she's soooo beautiful," said Lola.
(I still think she said "stupid" the first time).

Well, you know what the solution to that problem is...
(DH to Lola, assuming Soup Nazi voice from Seinfeld): No more fruit face pancakes for you!
what is a fruit face pancake? do they have opinions or trouble sleeping?
