Sometimesss She Surprisssesss Me

"Mama, this is my pet snake. 
It's venomous, but I have a special immunity.
You should be careful, though. Watch out for its stingers."

This introduction was then followed by a few hours of snake play, a declaration of her intention to become a veterinatrian and/or herpetologist, and a thoughtful examination of what in our household a large snake might consider as ideal food (cats and Baby Ilse, watch out!). 

What really cracks me up is that she can correctly use the words venom/ous, immunity and herpetology/ist but still calls a snake's fangs stingers.  I suppose she's only 3, after all.
