Vehicular-fixation or another lexical error?

According to Argy this is a ... snowplow. I'm assuming he thinks this softie is a scarecrow and is a little confused about the word? But then again through his eyes, it really might be a snowplough.

I must check if he can see a digger in this ...

NB: putting a snowplow in your field would probably also scare off the birds


  1. I was so proud of my pincushion mushroom that I made at Brown Owls a while back. Caleb told me it was the best rocket ship he had ever seen and played with it flying around the room for days.

  2. I love Argy's lexical errors. The Boo said her first proper word this week (not including mummy or daddy) and it was "Shoes" - thatta girl. I was so excited I made her say it over and over again.

  3. Your sons are hilarious! I love reading what they come up with.

  4. Heehee..the subliminal mind can be a tricky place. :p I'm not saying what I see in that Rorschach test. People already think I am weird enough. lol

    My kids, esp my ds, have come up with some really good ones. A couple of truly classic ones will never be forgotten, to their chagrin (and pride, on ds's side. :p )

  5. The bubster calls his magnifying glass "My microphone glass". Cracks me up every time. LOL!!! They can be soooooo funny. :-)
