Stating the Obvious

Daddy: See those robins, Button?

Button: Yeah! Why are they flying?

Daddy: Because they have wings! Why don't you fly? It's faster!

B: I don't have any wings.

D: Do you think you'll ever have wings?

B: No.

D: Did you ever have wings?

A: Daddy, I'm not a bird!

I thought it was kind of poignant that even a 3 year old knows that each species produces after its own kind.

I liked that too. So you've seen a robin! Spring is just around the corner for you. I saw a double rainbow this evening as I was arriving into Lincoln. I had driven through a lot of rain.
