Yesterday afternoon the kids were watching a video Jamie downloaded from iTunes about extreme animals. That episode was on birth. One of the animals was the Kiwi. Apparently Kiwis lay HUGE eggs in comparison to their bodies and it would be like a human giving birth to something like a 40 pound baby (And I thought Fritz’s 7-13 was big compared to Ani’s 6-11 and Cameron’s 6-6).
Last night Cameron drew and cut out a bird.
Then he drew and cut out a big circle. I said something about how he made a Kiwi and it’s big egg. Cameron looked at me like I was crazy and said “The beak isn’t long enough, Mommie.” As it turns out, the circle was a frisbee. Of course. I should have known.
So then Ani drew a bird and an egg. I wasn’t about to guess that this one is a Kiwi, but as it turns out it is. Notice it has a long beak compared to Cameron’s bird.
Also notice that these birds are in our Christmas tree. The kids told me the birds are nesting. One of Cameron’s airplanes has also already found it’s way into the tree. I have a feeling we’re going to have quite an interesting tree by Christmas.
