Funny kid!

Tonight David and I were playing Uno with the boys, all except Colin who choose to sit and look at a wildlife book. We jokingly call it "The Great Big Book of Everything" if you have kids and ever watched the show Stanley you understand a bit about this book. Each page folds out to reveal facts about a particular animal. He was talking out loud to himself as he flipped through the book. Our sound track while we were playing went something like this:

Vervet monkeys live in Africa but it doesn't say they are annoying thieves.

Bird of paradise lives in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. Hey I didn't see any of those in Jakarta.

Arctic Foxes are cool they are different colors in summer and winter.

North American Bull Frog ......mmmmm.....Yummy!

I just laughed out loud. Yummy frogs. That kid cracks me up.

Has he had frog. Some people eat frog legs and love them. I am not one of those people.

It's funny you use "the great big book of everything" phrase. It's been years since we've seen the show but we still use the phrase, only in reference to the internet.

I love it!

Sounds like a book that Honor would LOVE. She's currently reading any animal book she can get her hands on, and we get that running dialog too! Last night I had a rather intensive quiz on sharks... good thing I went through a similar phase when I was about her age and was able to answer all her questions.. keeping my rep of Mom, Knower of all Things, intact! (whew!)

My step-son loves this kind of book. He can spend hours looking at picturs of animals.
