On our way into work/Preschool yesterday morning, we were just about over the boundary into Hamilton when Ember piped up in tones of great excitement from the back seat:
Em: Mummy! Do you know what I saw?! There were cows!
Me: Yes, there were!
Em: And the cows were wearing cow coats!
Me: Well, I think that was just the colour of the cows.
Em: No, they was wearing cow coats, they was wearing black and white cow coats because the cows were a bit chilly.
Me: They might have been, but those cows are called Fresians, and their coats are black and white. I mean, they aren't wearing coats, their hair is just that colour. Like Tabasco is woolly and apricot coloured.
Em: I has a cow at my green house. And my cow is a bit chilly so he's wearing a cow suit, I give it to him. I give him a cow suit because he's a bit chilly Mummy.
