Yesterday while the girls were playing with the neighborhood girls, dd#2 was sitting on a log pretending to fish. She felt and heard a whoosh of wind and looked up. An owl was passing just above head. Close enough that she saw its talons. The girls got so scared they threw all their toys in the garage and ran.
After telling me the above story this is the conversation I had with them.
Dd#2 – Momma, did it want to eat me?
Me – no, owls don’t eat little girls.
Dd#2 – How do you know?
Me – Owls are good animals and only eat mice and other small creatures.
Dd#2 – Are you sure? How do you know it didn’t want to eat me?
Me – Because you don’t look like a little grey mouse with a long tail.
Dd#3 – BUT MOMMA!! When the owls fly way up in the sky and they see us, we look like tiny little mice to them!
Dd#2 – Are owls strong enough to carry a baby away?
We had a nice chat after that. LOL
