Truly, a wonder

We have started reading the Mercy Watson books to Eitan, and he seems to like them. Backstory: Mercy Watson is a pig. Her owners treat her as a child and frequently call her a porcine wonder. I explained to Eitan that “porcine” means “pig” but something didn’t sink in.

A couple weeks after this conversation, Eitan turns to Dodo and says “Dodo, you [are a] porcine wonder.”

Papa: “No, more like an ursine wonder!”

Eitan then insisted that Dodo truly was a porcine wonder.

Clearly, he understood the sentiment, if not the actual words.
