A little background: my son has asthma, and the last week he has really been struggling with it. He has been coughing alot and it has been driving us all crazy, especially him. We had a conversation about diseases earlier.
Son: "Gosh Mom, I hate having this disease! Do you have any diseases?"
Son: "What's Elephantitis?"
Me: "It's where your body swells up uncontrollably and you look like you are really fat all the time because of it."
Son: "Wow Mom. Sorry that you have that disease. Having diseases are no fun."
(Just for the record, I DO NOT have Elephantitis. I do not know anyone that does. I do know that it is a real disease and I am not intending to poke fun at anyone that may suffer from it or knows someone that does.)
