A recent conversation in the van with Jackson (almost 5) went something like this:
Jackson: I guess the birds could not make it back to their nest, so that is why they pooped on our window.
Me: So, do birds have potties in their nests?
Jackson: Yes, I think so.
Me: Well, no honey. Birds do not have potties like we do, they just go where ever they want to.
Jackson: Birds poop eggs too.
Me: No, not really.
Jackson: Yes they do.
Me: No, I promise they don't. (Now I could have just stopped right there, but then I would have missed what happened next.) Poop comes from their bottoms, eggs don't. (Ha! I side stepped that one.) Birds don't poop eggs.
Jackson: Sea turtles do.
Me: No, Jackson, they don't.
Jackson: Well, Momma I guess you've never seen a Sea Turtle.
