We visited a farm/forest park today, and had a wonderful time. I hope to have a longer post on it with photos tomorrow. But for now, a quick story:
As we walked along one path through the trees, we heard a rooster. “What’s that?!” Babess seemed quite shocked. “It’s a rooster,” I told her, and managed to point it out hiding in the bushes.
“Did it say cock-a-doodle-doo?” she asked in a puzzled voice.
“Yes he did,” I agreed, wondering what was so mysterious to her.
“But why did he do that when everyone’s already awake?”
Ahhhhh. I tried to tell her that roosters can crow at any time, but she gave me a witheringly disbelieving look. After all, in all her story books, roosters only crow at daybreak.
“Perhaps someone’s just finished their naptime then?” I suggested, and she agreed that that must be it.
