Before my ever-weakening memory completely fails me, I need to add a few good ones from earlier this spring.

My kids watch "Dora" on Nickelodeon and "Handy Manny" on Disney Channel, so they think they're fluent in Spanish. Like the time, Kid #1 (GBM) looked at the sacker at the grocery - a darker-skinned guy - and said, "HOLA!" And this one:

MMM: You know Mom, St. Patrick's Day is the Spanish word for Easter.

and this one, after he fell down and hurt his knee:

GBM (rubbing his knee): Oh, my ankle!

Me: Buddy, that's your knee.

GBM: Oh! Well...ankle is the Spanish word for knee.
