The associations in her mind, I'll never figure them out

Yesterday we were driving home from afternoon pickup at daycare and E spotted three birds on a strip of grass outside an apartment building.

E: Look, Mommy! Birds!
NES: Oh, I see them!
E: What are they doing?
NES: It looks like they're playing.
E: Where is the birds' daddy?

It's 6 pm, and around this time of day she often asks this question in regard to her own father, so I use a derivation of the standard answer.

NES: I don't know. Maybe he's still working.
E: No, Mommy. He's not still working.
NES: He's not? Well then where is he?
E: He's at shul!!!
