Spiders, Llamas, and Cocoons

More Hana Kate funnies…

On the way home from church this Sunday, Hana Kate all of the sudden yelled out, “Daddy, spiders have eight leeeggs!!!!” This was so completely random that Daniel and I both burst out laughing, and then Daniel said, “Yes, that’s right, Hana Kate!” She replied, “I actually knowed it!!!” Of course, her use of the word actually made us laugh again. I explained to her that we weren’t laughing at her, but that we were so amazed that she knew this fact. πŸ™‚ (Then, later that night we called her grandparents on Skype, and I told her to tell them. She repeated “spiders have eight legs” about 10 times (and the very first thing they heard when they picked up the call) because she wasn’t sure that they heard her.) Quite funny!

We saw the above llama at Grandaddy’s Orchard. (We stopped there to see the animals while we were on our way back home from Stepp’s Orchard.) Apparently, the kneeling position caused Hana Kate to wonder why he had no legs. So, she asked Daniel if he rolled. πŸ™‚ I guess that’s one way to move around if you’re a legless llama.

At the Children’s Museum, there is a little veterinarian station where Hana Kate loves to play. SheΒ  was going through all the animals and identifying which ones were cats and which were dogs. When she came to this one, she brought it to me and asked, “Is this one a cocoon?” I am so glad to have an ever-present laugh inducer! But I can totally see where she’d think looks like a cocoon, especially since the majority of her familiarity with cocoons comes from “The Hungry Caterpillar.” πŸ™‚.

    I finally realized that she’s not asking if the cat is a cocoon, but a raccoon. Which makes more sense, but it is still quite funny. πŸ™‚
