Kids say the Darndest things Friday-- the turtle...

    We were at the park feeding the ducks and turtles in the pond one afternoon a few years ago.  My children and I were talking about all the cute little turtles and the big hungry ducks and watching them eat the bread crumbs we tossed them.   I saw one turtle whose shell was covered in green moss, “Look at that turtle.  He looks like he’s covered in algae,” I said pointing him out to the kids.  At home later that evening, the kids were talking all about our day at the park.  They were reminiscing about all that we had seen and the fun we had.  Then, I overheard my daughter, who at the time was about 4 years old say, “Remember we saw that one turtle who was covered in allergies?”  Algae, allergies…there probably really isn’t much difference, at least not to a four year old.
