Hey honey! I have a great idea! Let's all get dressed in our jammies and cuddle up and watch Planet Earth together. We can have a learning evening together. Ok guys! Come on, hurry up, the show is starting!
Ooooh! Look at all the caribou! How cool, such a large herd! Look how they run all together! Oh, sweet little babies, so precious. Oh look! Wolves, see how they are running and, um...chasing the caribou. Oh...see how they are chasing the weak, innocent calf. Run calf, run! Don't trip! Sigourney said you can make it if you just DON'T TRIP. Run! Run, run, RUUUUN! Oh! Looks like the white wolf is a bit too fast, for the poor, sweet baby caribou. Quick, cut to commercial.
Cue sweet Natalie crying some serious tears for the baby caribou.
Cue Mama and Daddy trying to explain the circle of life, and the food chain to a now traumatized almost 5 year old.
Cue lots and lots and LOTS of hugs and kisses and reassurances that Heaven has a special place for all the animals, and that Jesus loves the animals too, just like He loves us.
