While I was working in my office, the youngest of the Zoo Crew came racing in with a shocking tidbit...the conversation went something like this:
Abbey: Mommy, there are ANTS in the basement!!
Me: OH, no!! What are they doing?
Abbey: They are marching and marching and marching all over a M-uh-M.
Me: What should we do?
Abbey: Don't leave M-uh-Ms on the floor? (pretty smart, huh?!)
Me: Well, yeah that would be a good start! But since we DID drop one, what should we do now?
Abbey: Stomp on dem. (runs off to stomp a few ants)
Returns to office...
Abbey: Gotted dem.
Me: Good. Now, shall we clean 'em up or leave 'em there as a lesson for other ants? (yes, I'm evil)
Abbey: Don't know. (runs off)
Returns in about 10 minutes with a picture in hand...
Abbey: I made dis for you. (It's a picture of a spider with LOTS of legs, drawn in hot pink marker. See below.)
Me: Why thank you.
Abbey: What does 'piders eat?
Me: Ants and flies and other bugs.
Abbey: Dey eat ANTS??!! Dat's not NIIIICCEE ??
Me: And stomping on them IS?
Abbey: Oh, Mommy. (sighing like I'm a loon)
And off she went. Gotta love her!
