Helloooo big black cow...



This morning I walked out of our garage to the sound of loud mooing. I looked over and was surprised to see a group of cows by our fence. Our property borders a farm, but we haven't had too many cow sightings yet. I couldn't resist creeping up to the fence for a closer look.



I told my little preschoolers about it this morning and showed them the pictures. After I told my version of the story, then we decided to write an imaginary story together about the big black cow!

  1. I'm afraid I have a couple questions based on your story:
    1 - Did you already have a baby and not tell anyone?!?
    2 - Why did you leave mud and worms in the baby's bed?
    3 - What sort of mutant cows are being raised in Iowa that eat worms!?!

    Once I get answers, I'll be able to better appreciate the context of the story. :-)

  2. I love the story... best I have read in a long while... it made me laugh out loud all by myself like a crazy person! Simply AMAZING!

  3. Don't forget - it was the 3, 4, & 5 year olds who wrote the story! I have to say I was a little concerned about the worms and mud in the baby's bed as well, but didn't want to stifle anybody's creativity. :) No babies here yet, either, but the topic does seem to be coming up at every turn! ;)

  4. Hmm....I think perhaps I'm too grounded (read: beat down) by reality to grasp the concepts so easily discussed by 3-5yr olds. I'd definitely end up stomping all over creativity to make sure we didn't have kids thinking cows ate mud and worms. I guess cows do MAKE mud...sort of. :-)
