Spring is in the air!

9-year old Child A was sitting at her desk, looking out the window when she saw 2 birds. They were flying in circles. One would land. The other would land on top of the other bird. Then back to flying in circles and it would all repeat. She was laughing and watching them play, but curious about what they were doing because it seemed to purposeful.

I simply told her that maybe they were getting ready to lay eggs. She looked at me, then back at the birds. Her eyes opened wide and she smiled. Then, knowledgeably, she said:

"Oh! One is trying to help the other push the eggs out. Scientifically speaking."

Or something like that. {wink, grin}
