The Mommy Hat: This Little Piggy

I had a conversation with my husband tonight that I never thought I would have. I was playing, “this little piggy” with Kelsey when all of a sudden my husband stopped me and questioned the lyrics to the game. Here’s how the conversation went.
.
ME: This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef …
.
HIM:  Roast beef? That’s not right.
.
ME: Yes, it is. It’s roast beef. This little piggy went to market …
.
HIM:  Why would the pig have roast beef?
.
ME:  No clue. Does it really matter? This little piggy …
.
HIM:  That doesn’t even make sense. A pig wouldn’t eat roast beef.
..
ME:  A pig also wouldn’t go to the store. It’s roast beef … isn’t it?   
..
Then, I thought about it more: Why would a pig eat roast beef? I thought I was loosing my mind, so I searched it online and sure enough – here it is, the full explanation of why the third little piggy had roast beef. So random. Regardless, it’s a fun game and my daughter loves it. When I’m done with one foot she signs “more, more” in sign language and I keep going. She is such a smart girl! And yes – it’s a great day when my husband has to say, “You were right”. Yet again.
