Stupid Nature Shows
A (slightly disturbing?) Story –
The other day, the kids are I were driving to the Big City to grocery shop and hit Walmarts.
Little: Mommy! If you were an ocean creature, what creature would you be?
(she often asks these kinds of questions. it is an ongoing conversation around here)
Me: Mmm, I don’t know. I want to be at the top of the food chain. Maybe an Orca?
Little: Yeah! An orca! And I will be your baby orca!
Little, enthusiastically: Mommy! Pretend we are swimming! We are swimming and swimming as fast as we can, except I am just a baby and get tired, but you go ahead and see a Great White Shark and you kill it and bring it back to me and we eat it up! And she had babies in there and we gobble up all her babies too!
Me: HORRIFIED SILENCE
I told Jim this story later, and he was all, “looks like we need to put another dollar in the therapy jar.”
