Gamma: Look at the bunnies! I’m a wild animal too, mama.
Me: (without inflection) Really. I had no idea. Okay Gamma, station four. (hands over ziplock bag) What is our activity?
Gamma: (pulls out laminated cards) Domestic Animals. Am I a domestic animal, mama?
Me: (hesitates) No. I’m pretty sure you’re not.
Gamma: (continues to read) Domestic animals are animals that can’t take care of themselves, they do not know how to find food or shelter in the wild. See, mama? I’m totally a domestic animal.
Me: (resigned) I stand corrected.
