Take Care of Your Onions


When my kids were about ages five and seven, I heard Alex say something in French to Ellie that sounded like she needed to pay attention to her own onions. I naturally inquired. Where are these onions that she should be looking after? And in my living room, no less...

It turns out that this is a French expression, occupe-toi de tes oignons, and it translates best as, "Mind your own business."
