A Giraffe and a Lion

“I rode a giraffe” my two-year old shared with my sister-in-law when she asked about our trip to the zoo. A giraffe?! It is possible I envisioned her thinking. Doubtful, but possible – can’t people ride giraffes? Or is that just camels? And then he continued to share, “and sister rode a lion”. Hmm. Hum. Definitely doubtful. Sister-in-law pursed her eyebrows and asked again. Same response. Has he branched from telling mistruths about the origin of a stinky diaper to all out tales of fantasy? No. Not yet. But a touch of clarification from other adults helps. A carousel. He and sister rode the giraffe an the lion on the carousel. And tonight are two very tired children.
