On the walk to school today, Elaine told me about the time her class sang "Are You Sleeping?"  She told the teacher that there was another song called "Ugachucka" that sounded the same, and the teacher, who was apparently a little quicker than me, said that it was the same song in a different language.  At this point, I realized Elaine meant "Frere Jacques."  I corrected her pronunciation and told her it was in French.

Elaine agreed and told me that she'd informed her class it was "from an old Star Trek episode."

There are a lot more pants jokes in my house now that Elaine is old enough to giggle maniacally at them.  And she's not the one making them.

Daniel:  "What kind of ice cream would you like?  Vanilla, mint chip, chocolate moose tracks, mustard, or pants?"

Elaine:  "All three kinds."

Daniel:  "All right -- vanilla, mustard, and pants."

Elaine:  "Vanilla, mint chip, and chocolate moose tracks!"

Daniel:  "Chocolate moose pants?"

There was also discussion of making mustard ice cream in the blender and using Parmesan cheese in place of sprinkles.  Not to mention more references to pants.
