The Circle of Life.

E is OBSESSED with The Lion King at the moment. She constantly asks questions about the film, goes around singing "Hakunah Matata" and "I Just Can't Wait To Be King", and asks to watch it every day. At the weekend she was running around quoting a line from the scene at the Elephant Graveyard: "Hippity hop all the way to the birdie boiler" ....except she kept saying "bunny boiler" by mistake!

*SPOILER ALERT* - if you haven't watched the film, you might want to stop reading now or you'll figure out the whole plot in a mo*.

Anyway, after an evening of battles, E's finally in bed . Of course, she is talking to her toys rather than sleeping. I just heard her educating them about how "we're all going to die one day ", and how she's going to die "when I'm really old", not like Mufasa because that "Naughty Scar killed him as he wanted to be king, but Simba's the king"!! Then she got up for a wee and was asking why Simba was a baby, why he grew up, and why we didn't watch him die too.

So it seems that she's learning all about the Circle Of Life! But I think we'll hold off on the bit that explains conception for a while longer yet.
