The other day we had a conversation sort of like this:
AA: Hey Dad, did you know that daddy seahorses can have babies?
AA: Yes, they get a baby in their tummy. They are the only animals where boys can have babies.
ME: And what happens after they have a baby?
AA: The daddy takes care of the baby seahorse.
ME: And what does the mommy do?
AA: She goes out and hunts for food.
[short silence, then excited]
AA: Hey Dad!
AA: We are Seahorses!
