Reading a story to the kids tonight. Dylan's pick is "5 Little Ducks." In the story, each baby duck fails to return when the mama duck calls. At the end there are no ducklings left and the mama duck cries "quack, quack, quack" and all 5 ducks come waddling back. Each has brought something special for their mother. As I'm reading we point out each duck's gift. Dylan and Kyla name each one, strawberry, shell, flowers, worm, until we get to the duckling holding a four leaf clover... Me: what does this duck have? Dylan: I don't know Kyla: oregano Only my daughter who eats fresh parsley, basil, mint and oregano from my garden would say that!
