Ok, there's no snails involved in this story, but it just seemed like an appropriate title.
Today on the way to gymnastics Ellie and I had the following conversation....
Ellie: Ariel has feet and legs.
Me: Yes, I know. But at the beginning of the movie, she has a tail.
Ellie: Right. And dogs have tails.
Me: Yes. What else has a tail?
Me: Yep, how about birds.
Ellie: No, that's crazy.
Me: What do birds have on their bodies?
Me: But what is all over them to keep them warm?
Ellie: .....(a few seconds delay).....Fedhers!!!!
Me: What do snakes and lizards have?
Ellie: I don't know.
Me: They have scales.
Ellie: Oh, scales, right.
Me: That's right. What to dogs have to keep them warm?
Ellie: ....(small delay)....Fur!
Me: (impressed- I figured she'd say hair) That's good. What do we have to keep us warm?
Words of wisdom from the carseat to you.
