Okay, this is really random, but the other day while Evie, my sister, Colleen, and I were playing with Evie's zebra pull toy, I excitedly asked Evie, "what sound does a zebra make??" She looked at me, with the expression, "I dunno ma - I'm just a baby- you tell me," and then I looked at my sister, dumbfounded. I had no idea what zebras sounded like - a horse?
My sister said her ex-boyfriend's parents lived next door to a house that kept zebras (?!) and they made crazy noises, nothing like a horse. So we looked it up and were cracking up. I had to share in case zebras were a mystery to everyone else as well. (Jamie did the same thing and said maybe every mom has a moment where they Google zebra noises and also added that giraffes sound crazy too.)
Isn't that crazy?? Now I make the noise every time we play with the toy, so my child will be the one at pre-school one day, making crazy zebra noises thinking that it's totally normal. Sorry Evie!
