Peasant, Pee-sant, Pheasant

Playing dress-up, Jaela asked me:

J: Mom, don't I look just like a princess?

(She's wearing two dresses, three layers of shawls, and a scarf tied over her straw hat...)

Me: Actually, you look more like a peasant girl.
J: Really?!? (runs back upstairs to tell her sisters...)


J: Mom, did I really look like a pee-sant?
Me: No, you looked like a peh-sant.

Macey, a few minutes later:

M: Mom, wasn't that funny when Jaela asked if she looked like a pheasant?
Me: No funnier than when you called her a pheasant instead of a peasant!
