So. We Were Watching Seseme Street...

Elmo's World was about birds today.
They were doing a thing with a picture of a nest in various places like a tree, a bathtub, or chair and asking where would you find the nest.
Katie looked at the flat round thing and announced "pie." I said, "no, it's a nest. It has a bird in it."

She thought for a moment and said "Bird Pie!"

The kid thinks about pie waaayyy too much.

The first thing that came to mind was the song with the line "4 and 20 blackbirds baked in a pie"

When I was little, my mom made little tarts like pies, and put 4 and 20 blackberries in each one, and cut a little bird picture into the tops. Each child would have their own "pie" in a litte tart tin. When she served it, we'd sing that song.

Bird pie
There was a "hippie" band in Minneapolis in the late 1960s called Poison Bird Pie.

So you're going to get her a birthday pie right?

Time to try her on a chicken pot pie.

There is no such thing as a child thinking about pie too much.
