The Impropriety of a Bear

In order to further enjoy our adventures with Sal and blueberry picking, Audrey and I are studying bears. Today I presented her with a simple bear sketch which she had to label with the following body parts: head, paws, body, and fur.

When she came to the latter term, she pointed to the arrow that directed attention to the bear's behind and asked, "What do I write here? Inappropriate?"

(Edit: So I'm reading this now, and it's probably a little unclear. Since I keep this blog for the sake of charting my little human being's adorable moments, I want to clarify so that when I am old and senile, I will have complete understanding. Audrey actually said the word "inappropriate". I did not use the italicized word "inappropriate" to replace any other term she might have used. And the blank that pointed to the bear's butt was for the word "fur". Not that a bear does not have fur covering his entire body, but anyway the arrow pointed to his butt. OK. All cleared up now. Oh, and I guess the reason she chose the word "inappropriate" is because we are always addressing her wild compensity for blurting out body parts at inappropriate times.)

"Ursus Arctos Gluteus Maximus," which roughly translates to "Brown Bear Butt."

You're welcome!

Thank you...and now give me the latin for Brown Bear Fur because that is what was supposed to go in the blank.

That is SO funny! We use the word "inapropriate" also. I remember one time an adult asking my daughter (age 5) if she had a boyfriend. She said, "No. That would be inappropriate." Love it!

The closest Latin that I can find is Ursus Arctos Pellis or Ursus Arctos Velleris. "Fur" doesn't translate.

Audrey is too adorable! What is she doing WRITING already? Isn't she only four? Stop that kid from growing up so fast!

She can still be YOUR Princess. But haven't you ever heard of sharing? =P
