This morning, my kid just said… so many things! It’s shocking, really. I didn’t realize she knows the names of so many animals already. I found out when I turned on her Dora The Explorer special DVD set. Animals started showing up on the screen, but only music (no words) was playing. One by one, she identified the animals that showed up.
The Princess: “Mommy! Wook (Look)! Bunny! Butterflies! Squirrel! Horse! Owl! Monkey!”
Amused. I decided to test her by asking her what each of her stuffed animals are.
Me (holding a dog): What is this?
The Princess: Dog!
Me (holding a bear): How about this one?
The Princess: Bear!
Me (holding a bunny): And this one?
The Princess: *pauses*
Me: It’s a bunny, baby.
The Princess: No mommy. Hare.
My goodness! A hare wasn’t even on my list while I was waiting for her answer. It was either a bunny or a rabbit to me!
