Wade has been quite proud of being a big boy for some time now, so I was a bit astonished to hear this conversation with Grandma.
Grandma: Come along, little man.Several days later Wade mumbled something about a woman. I didn't catch what he said, so I asked him to repeat.
Wade (indignantly): I'm not a little man! I'm a woman!
Wade: Mumble, mumble, mumble...Woman!(!!!!)
Me: What about a woman?
Wade: Mumble, mumble, mumble, mumble...Woman!
Me: Are you a woman?
Wade: No!! Mommy--woman! Christopher--camel! I'm an angel!

The angel wipes the tears of the camel.
