Yesterday Aidyn had an absolute ball with cousins. By the time I returned home from work, I found them laughing, squealing, and playing in his room, toys everywhere. He loves playing with other kids and often gets wrapped up in a world of carefree play. When the trio calmed down, I brought out our leopard gecko and let Aidyn tell his cousins about his new pet. I answered the older cousin's questions about geckos and allowed them all to pet and hold her. We talked about how she's nocturnal, what she eats, how she behaves, and her personality and temperament.
Later the three amigos played with these penguin-catapult toys. After trying to assemble the toy, they eventually began launching penguins in the air with great hilarity. I asked Aidyn why would these penguins need a catapult in the first place. He looked quizzically at the toy and said, "because penguins can't fly and these ones want to." Ah, out of the mouths of babes. : )
