I was chatting with Liz the other day and we talked about a book she's reading about where words come from. Today I thought about that again and wondered if there are books out there about where phrases come from. I was cleaning Esther's face with a wet rag and thought of the phrase, "Don't be such a wet rag" right as Esther was being mad at me for putting a wet rag all over her face. Is that where it comes from, I wonder? What child likes a "wet-rag clean-up"?
