Not Lam-buh But Lamb

Nutmeg seems to be kind of afraid of reading, or something like that. Anytime I tell her, "Read this book to Pebbles" or suggest a title that might be right for her to try, she insists that she can't read. Pause in the reading of a story, sometimes she'll name the next word, more often that not she'll implore, "You read."

But then, we're sitting at the table, and she points to the bargain leftover hunk of molded butter we'd bought that day. "Easter butter lamb," she says, and I say, Yup. That's what it is.

Only when I'm clearing to I notice the label on the side: "EASTER BUTTER LAMB."
