If China confuses adult foreigners, what about their kids?

Jessica and our oldest had this conversation this morning:

L: “Mommy, do you remember when you were talking about how Daddy was born in the horse’s ears?”
Jessica: “What? Can you say that again?”
L: “The horse’s ears…Daddy was born there. And you said that I went to the hospital and was born in the cow’s ears.”
Jessica: “Are you telling silly stories again, L?”
L: “Mommy, no! You said it!!! I was born in the ear of the cow!!!”
Jessica (pieces finally colliding together): “Oh! L, I said you were born in the YEAR of the cow. And Daddy was born in the YEAR of the sheep. And Mommy was born in the YEAR of the horse. And K was born in the YEAR of the dragon.”
L: “Are you sure I wasn’t born in the cow’s ear?”

And then a few minutes later from L: “Are there really dragons?”
