Tonight, Emma was telling me about the ocean lesson they had at school today. They watched a video that talked about sharks and other fish. She was proud to know that sharks are fish and whales are not.
I asked her what's the difference between the two that makes one a fish and one not.
She knew that sharks breath in the water and whales have to go to the surface to get air. I should have stopped there...
"What else?" I asked.
She didn't know for sure what else made them different so I told her that sharks lay eggs and whales carry their babies in their tummies, just like people.
"OK, OK, OK... But..." she said with a pause. "I'm very frustrated right now."
"Why?" I ask.
