Because What do _______ eat? is one of her new favorite topics of conversation.
Uli: Mama, what do lizards eat?
Me [not really current on lizard cuisine]: Umm... Bugs. And plants. Well, maybe not plants... Eggs?
Uli: [horrified] No, not eggs! Eggs are where baby birds grow! They grow up inside and pop out of the shell. Lizards aren't allowed to eat those babies' eggs, no!
Me: Some lizards maybe do eat eggs I think. And meat.
Uli: Maybe meat, yes. But not the baby bird eggs. It's not okay to eat eggs.
Me: Some animals have to eat eggs and meat.
Uli: Not me. And not lizards, not any more.
She's on a crusade.
