Today the kid and I were doing a puzzle. It had animals in it…animals with tails. The bunny, in particular, had a fuzzy tail, so we were feeling the bunny’s tail and saying “Oooh….soft tail!”
Then the kid pointed to her head – to the little pigtail her daycare lady had put there today – and said, “Tail!”
The proud Mama that I am, I congratulated her on making that connection. “Yes!! I said. “Good for you! That’s a tail too!”
Our dog was laying nearby at the time, so I said to the kid, “Where’ s Murphy’s tail?” She giggled and ran over to him and pointed to his long black tail which had just begun to wag.
“Tail!” she said, and giggled again.
Then, thinking I would stump her, or at least amuse her, I said, “And where’s Mommy’s tail?”
Without even pausing, the kid ran up to me, lifted up the back of my shirt…..and pointed to my insulin pump.
I guess that’s one way to look at it.
