Maddox is currently obsessed with the show Little Einsteins; it's actually pretty entertaining, because he watches and listens carefully enough to learn a bit from it. Whenever I ask him to be quiet these days, he tells me, "No, Mom, I like to be crescendo!" In any case, one of his favorite episodes involves a bald eagle. Last night I was giving him a bath and he noticed that there was a bald eagle on the washcloth we were using (thanks, Nonna!).
He said, "Look, Mom! A val-geegle! Just like on Little Einsteins!"
It took me a minute to figure out what he was talking about.
I said, "Oh, a BALD EAGLE. Very cool."
"No, Mom, it's called a VAL GEEGLE."
