Adventures in Darwinism

One of Ashley's uncles (*cough* Uncle Andy *cough*) bought her a little stuffed animal for a gift several Christmases ago. Ashley recently rediscovered it and has added it to her nighttime menagerie of bedtime pals that she can't sleep without.

The other night when I was tucking her in, I picked the little guy up off the floor and said:

"Ashley, here's your....................huh."

I have no idea what this thing is.

So being the extra resourceful mom that I am, I took a survey of the various members of my household in an effort to classify the thing into its appropriate species of stuffed animal. (I skipped Aidan and Owen since they still think a cat says "woof woof.")

I think it's a lion. You've got the mane, the poof on the tail, the coloring... Definitely lion.

Scott, on the other hand, thought it was a gopher. Hmmm........

Ashley went with kangaroo. I dunno...I'm not seeing it. But she was pretty insistent.

I guess we're not going to come to an agreement. Therefore, I've decided to classify it into a species all its own. We'll call it....the ligoroo.

hehe, love it. I'm with you though, Lion.

Although if Logan was to chime in, he'd call it "Yellow kitty" and call it a day. Nothing is named in my house with a colour. Pink baby and yellow baby included. I'm red mommy. Or captain, or lately sir. But since this isn't my blog, i'll shut up now :p
