My son, Jorge, provides me with an overabundance of pride, joy, frustration and worry, just like every child. He came home about 8 years ago it was only 6 months after his homecoming that I couldn't imagine my life without him. Just like every child. Someday, I'll write about the entire adoption process but it's Friday and time for fluff or should I say fur? See, Jorge's latest obsession (and I mean obsession) is with:
It started with an interest in Cheetahs because they run so fast and Jorge loves to run. It expanded to cover all the big cats in the category. Every library book he brings home has to do with big cats. He actually keeps a notebook with facts about big cats. When he gets computer time, he spends it watching YouTube videos of big cats. He has, in fact, introduced me to species I have never heard of: Servals? Caracals? Ligers anyone?
Oh yes, there is such an animal as a Liger and it is a cross between a Lion and a Tiger. What? You don't believe me? Here's a clip:
And, if you want more, here is my new favorite video of a Caracal making a HUGE leap into the air to catch a Guinea Fowl.
Isn't it great what our kids can teach us? Happy Weekend Everyone!
