I may have mentioned before that the twins' favorite animals are slugs. They are slow and watchable. Today D4 took me on a walk, saying, "Find flocks!"
"Flocks?" I asked.
"No, Flogs!" he said.
"Oh, slugs," I said.
"Slogs! Find slogs!"
So we looked for slogs all over the garden, and we found them in plenty. Each time we saw one, D4 called out, "Slog! Nother slog! Don step onnit! It's gucky!"
Fast forward a few hours. I had taken DOB to the gym, so Their Majesties were putting the kids to bed after another outside play time. As she picked up D4 to change him, D4 exclaimed, "I tep onna slog! I tep onna lello slog!"
Hearing this later, I interjected, "Well, he doesn't really know his colors yet, he just assigns them at random . . . "
"Oh, it was a yellow one alright," Her Majesty said.
Further examination of D3's feet revealed that she, too, had participated in the test to determine just how gucky stepping on slogs really was.
What is not known is their conclusions from this experiment.
However, I did notice that Their Majesties were exceptionally helpful in helping DOB rig up his gym bag to his walker so that he can go to the pool on his own in the future.
