Animal Classification

I think we need to work on this…

This morning, I asked LO on a whim, “What kind of animal is Chim?” Now, this kid has been to the zoo, petting zoos, pet stores, you name it. Everyone in the family has a dog. We have a dog, my in laws have a dog, my parents have a dog, some of our friends even have dogs. And yet…

She looks at me with a blank stare and says, “I don’t know!” So, with my best teacher voice, I said, “Is she a… giraffe? An elephant? A kitty? A dog? A hippo? A horse?…” and so on and so forth.

All of a sudden, a light bulb seems to go on in her head. She jumps up and down and declares that our dog is in fact… A HIPPO!!!

So apparently, my dog needs to lose some weight. I corrected her, but I think she might be closer with the hippo idea.
