We love to read around here. While we were in Thailand in June, we picked up a couple Dr. Seuss Beginner Books such as "Ten Apples Up on Top" and "Are You My Mother".
In "Are You My Mother" a newly-hatched bird tries to find his mother who has gone to find her little one some food. After asking a kitten, a hen, a dog, a cow, a car, a boat, and a plane if they were his mother, the little bird finds "a big thing". He asks the "big thing" if it is his mother, "But the big thing just said, 'Snort.'"
With all of the construction for the new metro going on in the capitol, there are many such "big things" around. Lil Pumpkin saw one a couple days ago and said, "Look, Mommy! A snort!" It was one of those moments when you think, "My kid must be the cutest one in the whole world!" :)
