Saturday afternoon, Sean and I were reading one of his little DK Reader books about how frog eggs turn into tadpoles turn into frogs. I told him that a lot of things start out life looking like tadpoles besides frogs – chickens, rabbits and even little babies. And then we looked at a book that shows a developing fetus — and in many ways in the earliest stages, it looks remarkably similar to a tadpole.
“Wow,” Sean said in awe as he peered at each of the pictures. “That’s inter-westing.”
After thoroughly inspecting the last picture of the doctor proudly holding up a newborn baby, he said, “I’m glad I didn’t turn out to be a frog!”
“Me too!” I said.
That woulda really surprised the doctor, not to mention sullied my good reputation.
