If you haven’t already figured it out, we love the zoo. WE LUURRVVEEE the zoo and whenever possible, I start letter of the week at the zoo and since its been a while (read: two weeks) since we last went, I packed the troops and toddled off to see the P is for penguin and P is for Parrot.
We always “review” our alphabets at the zoo; you know L is for Lion, C is for cheetah, F is for fish… you get the drift. So that always makes for a fun learning day at the zoo.
Anyway, we opted to take a little more time to look at the penguins and parrots. In particular, we chatted about the time we went and fed the parrots at the Farmart a few weeks back. Q has asked to go back to feed the “faraway parrot” (cos, well, the parrot was standing faraway from his perch, funny how kid’s mind work) several times so maybe we’d do that some time.
I picked making a penguin and a parrot, complete with an array of colorful faux feathers for our letter crafts and towards the end of our crafting, Q declared: P is for Peeing!
Ah… maybe we are getting somewhere with our toilet training.
