08:21 pm - The One Girl at the Frog Party
Today I took Leila to a "Friendly Frogs" class at a local children's museum. Her most recent issue of Your Big Backyard had an article about eggs, and they talked about frog eggs, and there was a make-your-own minibook about tadpoles. She's into frogs lately, so I thought this frog class would be a good idea.

It was one hour of talking about/looking at pictures of stages of frog life, examining a frog skeleton, doing a frog-related craft, listening to various frog calls on the internet, and meeting a real-live African clawed frog named Webster.

About 10 minutes into the class, I noticed that she was the only girl in attendance. I was somewhat pleased by this.

She had a great time, of course. She loves any kind of animal whatsoever -- even spiders, snakes, lizards, bats. An animal does not have to be cute or fuzzy to win her interest and admiration. When we got home, I cued up the website that had been used in the class -- eNature.com and we spent about half an hour listening to the frog calls again and cracking up over how frogs can sound like birds, pigs, or just...I dunno. Pieces of wood clacking together.

The girly is Fun.

For some reason, it comforts me greatly to know they still publish Your Big Backyard.
