Little Smarty Pants

Readers, meet Velma.  She's Olivia's new favorite character.  And, this is her new favorite book.  (A random grab from the library last Friday...one I've already read at least 10 times.)




Now, picture this conversation:

Me:  Olivia, what's it called when a caterpillar turns into a butterfly?
Olivia:  Metamorphosis.  {Pronounced PERFECTLY}
Me:  Well, what's it called when the butterflies fly south to Mexico to stay warm?
Olivia:  Migration.  {Again, perfect enunciation}
Me:  Well, what's that special place where butterflies sometimes live?
Olivia:  The conservatory.

Thank you, Velma Gratch for teaching my little sponge all about butterflies.

Happy Tuesday from the Central Coast!
