How white is a White Rhino?

Carolyn Tann Starr 2010

How white is a White Rhino?

I have some really cool film of this puppy rolling around in the mud like a baby piglet (LOL). It is remarkably quiet for its size... We enjoyed trying to convince my 4 year old that it actually was a White Rhino. Mr PDD-NOS thought we were crazy because it obviously was not white. With the logic of a pre-kindergarten student who knows all of his colors, he initiated this conversation:

Stephen: "Mommy, how white is a White Rhino? That's not a WHITE Rhino. It's not white at all... Mommy is being silly."

Me: "You're right. I am silly. That's really a mud monster. His first name is White. His last name is Rhino. When you see him you have to call him White Rhino because that's his name, just like your name is Stephen Starr..."

Stephen: "Oh... okay..."

When your kids periodically engage in Echolalia, are in special education and speech therapy, you have to think really quick on your feet when they require an explanation because they are literal little buggers and will lock in all kinds of trivial information to be used against you later on (word for word - LOL).
