It's when you eat ice cream

Last night as I was reading a story to Gina. Each time I read with her, we stop to make sure she understands the meanings behind the words. So last night we came across this word, 'brainstorm'. So I asked her do you know what a brainstorm is? Her positive nod of the head made me wonder how she knew this so I asked her, "Okay Gina tell me what you think a brainstorm is." Her reply made me chuckle as she boldly shared her answer with me.
"It's when someone eats ice cream and your brainstorms!"

Then she began to giggle and I said. "Are you sure about that?" She suddenly realized she had it wrong, but it was so cute that we both had a good giggle together. I kindly explained what a brainstorm really is and she humbly received the correction.

Much better than taking a test and getting a red x on it. ;O)

Vocabulary words:
Brainstorm-(noun) a sudden impulse, idea, etc.
Brain freeze-(noun) a sudden feeling of pain in the forehead or temples, esp. when eating or drinking cold items, caused by the temporary narrowing of the arteries as a result of the rapid cooling of the hard palate; also called [ice cream headache]
