Quote of the Week
"Emmy, you look like a macaroni penguin."
So I don't know quite yet if Miles is brilliant or not, but this I do know: his memory is Outstanding. So 2-3 months ago we read about penguins from library books and they mentioned the different kinds of penguins - not all penguins are Emperor penguins, ya know? And, of course, one variety of penguins is called the Macaroni penguins. That was the last I had mentioned or talked of them.
Then. . . we got a DVD movie from Grandma Phyllis and it had 3 penguins on the front cover. Miles pointed to one of them and told me, "That's a macaroni penguin." Frankly I did not know what he was talking about. I just thought he had made up some funny name for the penguin. Low and behold I came in at one time during the movie and a little penguin introduced himself as "a macaroni penguin." What? I had not remembered that at all. But of course Miles had.
And what makes a macaroni penguin stand out to a 4-year old? Well of course the name AND the hair. Gotta love it!
