Lauren the kids and I were sitting in a booth by a window at one of the local burger joints when Maxfield points to an overgrown area of trees just outside the window.
"Look Daddy. A jungle." He said in his three year old way.
I looked over. "Yeah buddy that's a jungle."
"There's birds and cats and monkeys and PUMAS and (inaudible) and Grillas in there." He tapped the window as he said each animal name.
I laughed and looked at Lauren. "Pumas? Where does he learn this stuff?" I asked.
Lauren shrugged her shoulders and said, "Diego, I guess."
Having seen an episode or two of Diego myself I asked Max, "Do penguins live in the jungle?"
He laughed. "No. Penguins live in the snow."
"But Grillas" I said chuckling at the way he pronouces the word, "they live in the jungle."
Maxfield shot a smile back at me. "But they go pee pee hanging in a tree on a branch."
I did a double take to Lauren. "Did he learn that on Diego too?"
"No." She said laughing and not trying to choke on a frie. "He must have learned that at the zoo a while back. There were a few gorillas hanging from a tree and one of them starting peeing. He didn't say anything then, but, man I am surprised what he remembers."
For the record, I do think that would make an excellent Diego episode.
