"Mommy, did you know that animals have special parts of their body to protect them?"
"I do know that, Sammy. Like frogs that have poison on their skin or porcupines with their sharp quills"
"Just like you, mommy. You have "spikies" all up and down your legs to protect you!"
Nice. Thanks. Self protection is a personal mission. I do a fabulous job of it in the winter.
