This Week's Video Roundup

Here are some of the questions Gemma asked this week, and the videos we watched for answers...

"How is hay made?"
This video -
How To Make Grass into Hay Bales
is shows how grass is made into hay in six days. It's more than six minutes l-o-n-g, but it answers the question.

"How did the doctor tear me out of you?"
I stifled a laugh, texted my mom HELP!, and showed Gemma this video of a dolphin birth:

The next morning, the first thing out of her mouth was: "Do all frogs croak?"
The answer is no:

Gemma is still obsessed with O Fortuna from Carmina Burana. She wanted to be able to sing the lyrics and know what they meant. This video has both the Latin and English lyrics.

Finally, Gemma wanted to watch all of the Edward Lear nonsense poetry. It led to her speaking in limericks. Here is part 1:
