Today on the way to work we were discussing our plans for the weekend – a drive in the country, we said, to see farms and look at spring flowers.
“And we might see some farm aminals!” said Fainjin excitedly.
“Oooh yes, and it’s spring, so there will be baby lambs,” I replied.
“Baby lambs! And Mummy and Daddy lambs!”
“Sheep,” I corrected. “And you might see baby calves…”
“And Mummy and Daddy calves?”
“Cows and bulls, yes. What else, do you think?”
“Pigs! And ducks and chickens! Ducks and chickens are my fav’rites!”
Babess’ voice piped up, full of hope.
“And maybe some baby hippos?”
