Morning conversation (running errands)
Paricipants: John & Mommy
"Mommy, what is a jaguar?"
"I think it's part of the cat family. Daddy would know."
"What do they eat Mommy? Will they eat me?"
"No John. They don't live here."
"Mommy, if a gorilla and a jaguar met who would get eaten?"
(We seriously need to get Animal Planet!)
"Mommy, did you know that a baby zebra can tell which zebra is its mommy by the stripes on the mommy's rear end?"
"No John I didn't know that. Where did you hear that?"
"Ashley and Ashley knows everything about zebras."
"Who paints the zebras Mommy?"
"God does John."
in his dreamy voice "I wish I could paint the zebras."
