The children in my class are all so beautiful and individual, it’s amazing how a 4 year old can be so sure of themselves, so creative and loving. So this conversation happened today…
We were reading the Owl Babies story and I asked a little girl ‘Why you think mummy owl left the baby owls?’ She paused for a moment.
'Because the mummy owl had enough and needed her own time with no babies'
I had to hold back and not laugh. She said this in such a matter of fact way, like yeah duh she’s had enough three baby owls and no daddy owl around, my gawd. Following this, another boy almost read my mind and said
'But where is daddy owl? Why doesn't he help? Mummy owl can't do everything by herself can she?'
