- and the signs outside of the display area really helped me figure things out!
come on reed... ya gotta read the signs.!!!!
When my daughter was 4 and in preschool/daycare... they took the kids to the zoo and I was a parent helper.
So we are at the Philly zoo and most of the kids in the group are runnning around, picking thier noses, crying... being 4 yr olds.
The worse one in the group seemed like she was on a diet of 100% sugar. Wired, mouthy, not listening... "your not my parents."
damn.. this was supposed to be a fun day with MY daughter.
But I noticed... at each display she would walk up to the animals and say what the animal was and give some factual info on the animal.
So I am still too wrapped up in chasing kids and her wild antics to notice that she was pretty much 10 for 10 at that point in knowing the animals and thier habitats etc.
So quickly this "worse kid in the group" peaked my interest for something other than being a pain in da arse.
So I ask this young girl... this 4 yr old... "You know alot about these animals... how many times have you been to this zoo?"
She replies... "One time with my grandmom"
"wow..." I say..."so how do you know so much about all these animals?"
She replies "Well I just read these signs right here mister, they tell ya everything about the animals"
four years old. Most of the kids were still having accidents in thier pants and this girl was reading the signs. No wonder she was so bored... her mind was so advanced she need constant challenges.
Moral to the story:
Reed... if that 4 yr old had figured out the signs at the zoo tell you about the animals, then...
But I have no room to talk, being absent from the days events.
MM - howz that for no talky?
