A Conversation With my Mackerdoodle

mackerdoodle:  We’re not scared of birds, right mama?

Me: No, birds can’t hurt us.

mackerdoodle:  I like penguin birds.  The look like they can fly, but they can’t.  And they have beaks, like this.  (making a beak with her hands in front of her mouth.)

Me:  that’s right

mackerdoodle: but I’m scared of pelicans.

me:  Pelicans?  You’re scared of pelicans?

mackerdoodle:  yeah.

(beat)

mackerdoodle:  Mama?

me:  Yes, baby girl.

mackerdoodle:  What a pelican look like?
