The United States of Antarctica

Three things in Trinhity's current repertoire converged tonight at dinner:
  • Penguins (from Happy Feet)
  • The Pledge of Allegiance (from school)
  • World Geography (partially courtesy of a World Map puzzle gifted to us from The Neighbors We Love, partially because Daddy's obsessed with geography)
So obsessed, in fact, that today I bought her a World Map placemat for the dinner table. She immediately found Antarctica, because that's where the penguins live. Also because her plates and bowls were covering up the rest of the map.

Then she launched into the Pledge: "I pledge allegiance...to the flag...of the United States of Antarctica..."
