Lovegirl’s field trip went off without a hitch. She enjoyed seeing the cheetah, the monkey who “ate some tasty looking fruit,” riding the train, and the volcano.
Back it up – volcano?
“Oh Mama, the volcano was so pretty! I think it was my favorite animal.”
“Honey, there is no animal called a volcano. Are you trying to say flamingo?”
“I am trying to say vol-ca-no. Volcano.”
(Not sure at this point whether I should be laughing or shaking she-who-is-sassy)
“What did this volcano look like honey girl?”
“Blue with big feathers and pretty colors.”
(Log on to internet, g.oogle a picture)
“Is this it?”
“Yes! That’s a volcano! I love it!”
“That my dear, is a peacock.”
Though I see how you could mistake a peacock for a volcano. Kind of like the squirrel that resembled a kangaroo.
She’s killing me y’all. And she’s just 3! I cannot begin to imagine the fun that 4 will bring!
