As you know, Em loves all animals. Well, maybe not all. Yesterday, a bird pooped on her:
Emily: "Mom, I hate wild birds that poop on me." Cathie: "You hate all wild birds?" Emily: "No, I love wild birds - just not the ones that poop on me." Cathie: "Em, this shouldn't be such a big deal. The frogs you're always catching pee on you all the time." Emily: (rolling eyes) "Mom, don't you know that it's really NOT pee, but a defense mechanism to keep them safe. There's a big difference."
