Harper has a Fisher Price zoo, which comes with 26 animals, one for every letter of the alphabet. Harper knows the names of quite a few of the animals although, with one for every letter, there are some creative choices. Anyone care to guess what "u" might be? She's also pretty good at matching the animals with the letters on the zoo play mat. The animals have letters on them and the letters on the mat all have pictures of their animals, so she's really just matching, but it takes a lot of concentration. Anyhow. . . We are having one little problem with the zoo. It has to do with the camel. Of course camel begins with "c" and has a letter "c" printed right on it. The "c" means nothing to Harper, who insists the camel is a horse. Actually she insists it's a "howsie." Over and over, "It's a camel!" We tell her. She is not buying it. Today Auntie M told her it was a camel and she deigned to say camel one time before she went back to horsey.
Isn't she awfully young to have already decided that we don't know anything?
