What’s A Donk?

children

My two kids came at the same time. No problem though. Having twins is always a treat, for the most part. When my twins reached the age of six, I suggested a change in their vocabulary. I carefully explained that a doggy is a dog, a kitty is a cat, a froggy is a frog, and so on. Enchanted with this new, adult world, they captured the spirit of the so-called “adult English” with gusto. On a trip one day, we came upon an animal-drawn cart. “Hey, Mom. Look at the donkey,” one twin remarked.

With a scornful look, his sibling stated authoritatively, “We’re big boys now, Steven. That’s not a donkey – it’s a donk.”

As a mom, I can definitely sympathize with how difficult raising a child can sometimes be. It is probably the hardest full time job out there. Before I get married, I even had several theories about not having children. I thought that my profession would consume all the time I could spend with my kids.

But now, I have two children and no more theories. It was the best decision ever!

About Erin Torres

I’m Erin Torres, a dentist but occasionally volunteers as a nurse. Long story short, I’m a science person and I expect statistical proof whenever possible to convince me and most things. But as I continue to mature, I’ve become more and more impressed by the frequency of statistically highly improbable events. In their very improbability, I began to see the fingerprints of God. God bless and have a nice day everyone!
