Teach your children well

A five year old made it into the news after his mommy was picking him up from daycare last week at a church in Daly City: Look, Mommy, there’s a lemur!

Maybe you saw a raccoon, honey.

The kid knew what a lemur was, he’d seen a lemur, and it was right there!

Which led to the daycare people closing the door on the little playhouse, calling the cops, the cops calling San Francisco Zoo five miles away, and the rescue of said lemur from inside that playhouse after it had gone missing. The person believed to have stolen it has been arrested and the five year old now has a lifetime free pass to the zoo with his family.

The daycare got the missing-lemur reward.

You never know when you’ll need to know what a lemur is.

Sometimes I think I need to run a defrag on my brain. There is just so much stuff in there and the in-house librarian is not quite as quick as she used to be.

However, this wonderful story proves that you just never know when you’ll need one of those little bits of information.

What an awesome little guy for recognizing a lemur and what an awesome mum (and daycare folks) who really listened and believed him. What a lucky little lemur who got rescued from what could have been a dire situation.
Great things all around!

And the lesson here – when the little one tells you, believe him! Way to go Mom!

I love that the zoo gave him a lifetime pass! What a great story.

Sometimes we really underestimate the knowledge (intelligence) of children. 🙂
