Be a fly on the wall at my house for a minute.

While I’m folding laundry on the couch, Soren is at my feet looking at a picture book that contains a lot of different animals. “Is this a lion? Is this an elephant? Is that a deer? Is that an ostrich?” I think at one point he’s pointing to a leopard and I say, “That’s a leopard. Leopards have spots.”
Miriam, who is unloading the dishwasher, chimes in, “Cheetahs too.”
I’m stumped for a moment and say, “Hm, I’m not sure,” because all I can think of is the Cheetos mascot and I’m not sure if that’s biologically accurate.
Christina assures me, “Yes, yes, Mommy, cheetahs have polka dots too. When a cheetah comes to our house you can see his polka dots.”
