Drew, soon to be three was talking to some horses through a fence. It went something like this.
Drew: Hi horsies. I Drew. I Three. What doing horsies?
Drew: I said hi horsies, what doing?
Drew: Why you no talk to me. Mommy! Horsies no talk to me! Tears, cry, fits of rage.
I guess at some point in our lives we realize that animals can't talk back. I'm not sure when I learned that or how I felt about it. I suppose it wasn't nearly this traumatic for me. Chalk it up to too much talking animals on tv and a kid could get a complex. Let's hope he gets over it. Pretty sure showing him reruns of Mr. Ed is not a good idea though.
