Or is it the horses and the sheep? OK, so Nora watches the little foal out in our field with his mommy and asks a lot of questions. (She asks a lot of questions about everything, but that’s another story.) We’ve explained to her that the baby horse is drinking milk from his mommy’s tummy. Ahhhh! OK, that makes sense to her. She seems to get it.
This morning she wakes up and comes and climbs into our bed, bringing her stuffed toy sheep that she loves to play with. Then, she pulls up her shirt and holds the sheep close to her tummy and makes little smacking sounds. “Mommy, sheep eating from my tummy.” We’re trying not to laugh as she continues…. “Mmmmm…eat a hot dog, eat rice, eat fish…sheep eat from mommy’s tummy. Nora mommy.”
OK, so maybe she didn’t quite get the gist of how the little horse was getting milk from his mommy’s tummy. We’ll save the next lesson on the birds and the bees for another day. :-)
