We came home Tuesday night to wilted flowers. I said “oh no! What are we gonna do?”. Joshua said “that’s okay mommy. They just need water and sunshine”. Awwwwww… that was just the cutest. I said to him, “Joshua, you are so smart!” Since the sun was already down, we took the flowers outside and Joshua watered them.
This morning Joshua asked me “where are all the birdies?” I noticed the same thing too. I didn’t hear any birds chirping this morning when I woke up. We talked about it and decided that maybe it’s because it was a little chilly this morning. Maybe the birdies are hanging out in their nests with their baby birdies but most likely the rolly-pollies are out. Joshua likes rolly-pollies. We usually see them out on chilly days on the walkway to the door of his preschool. We like to count them in the morning before I drop him off. During the day while I’m at work, Joshua likes to collect and keep them in his hand until I come and pick him up (yes…yuck).
Joshua told me that “birdies eat bugs, daddy told me that. Do birdies eat rolly-pollies?”.”Son, that’s a good question! Let’s find out later”. Anyway, there were rolly-pollies this morning. We counted seven.
Later when I picked him up from school and we went home, we researched and found out that birds do eat rolly pollies and that female birds can eat them for calcium to make their eggs healthier. I asked Joshua if he knew that and he said “ya”. Hahaha, kids say the cutest things.
