Defender of wildlife

I was trying to buy Catherine off tonight and get her to be quiet and go to sleep by offering her one of their stuffed animals: a duck.

She examined the creature and became somewhat disturbed when she realized it had no ears.

I explained to her that sorry, ducks don't have ears. (I left it at that, not wanting to get into the anatomical and functional technicalities with a three-year-old).

Now she insists that we go to the store tomorrow on behalf of the duck to buy it some ears.

Heh heh... there is no digging yourself out of that one!

See, anatomical lessons can save money, sometimes.

B-Boy is at the "why" stage. And he actually keeps bugging me if I point out something is just complex. He wants to know, then amazes me by repeating what he learned.

He's going to be scary.

Break out Mr. Potato Head. He has ears to spare!

Maybe it's time to call up the local petting zoo, and ask when their next batch of chicks is ready to hatch.
