My younger son, Smalls, loves animal noises. I think most kids (smaller, in particular) do. He loves yelling “moo” when he sees cows, “noo-nee-noo-nee-noooo” when he sees a rooster, “wah-wah” when he sees a “kree-krat” [kitty cat], and “ribbit” when he sees….a turtle? Yes. In our house, for now, “ribbit” goes with both frogs and turtles, according to Smalls. Just as he’ll answer with “ham”, every time you ask him what is in his mouth, he’ll answer with “ribbit” when you ask him what a turtle says.
But yesterday was actual frog day in Bigs’ class. Not the turtles that can be confused with frogs.
I made a frog-shaped PB&J, and let him sit on his crust branches. I also packed banana chips, dried cranberries, red grapes, and for dessert – a gummy worm. Frogs like worms. I think.
Have a wonderful day,
