“Grammy, we were catching worms at school today! Why do they eat dirt?”
My on the fly response, “Well, worms eat dirt because someone has to.”
My four year-old grand girl then related a story of her preschool teachers instructing them about animals. “Grammy, did you know God made beautiful animals and things? God made zebras, elephants, and even lions. But…not cows…or sheep…or pigs. I guess farmers made those.”
Sounds like some pages and illustrations were missing from that animal book at school!
