In honor of my New Years Resolution we went hiking. As we began our hike my 4 yr old said "I don't want to get hurt by any cactuses." I thought, this is a great teachable moment. I explained that if there was more than 1 cactus then they are called cacti. That some plural forms, which is more than 1, don't have a 's' at the end. I did mention I was explaining this to my 4 yr old right? Ok good. As we got further along on our hike ds quips again, "There sure are a lot of cactis on this trail." Oh well, he kind of got it.
