The kids were being crazy this morning and Bappa said, “I hear they’re having a kid swap at Huntsville Park today. Maybe we should take you two down there.”
Della said, “What’s a kid swamp?”
“It’s where you can bring your kids and trade them for some different ones.”
Della started crying really hard. “No! I want to stay with my mommy and daddy!”
Bappa had to explain that he was just teasing, and there is no such thing as a kid swap, and that we would never trade them in even if there was a place where we could do that.
Later I heard Della threatening her brother, “George! You’re going to the kid swamp!”
