I get to spend them with both kids at home and that usually means abandoning chores for play-time.
Today I asked Libby what she wanted to do.
“Let’s collect leaves and flowers,” she said.
We set off with a basket, scouring the neighbourhood for fallen blooms and foliage.
“I love things from nature,” Libby said.
“What are you favourite things from nature?” I asked.
“Flowers, feathers and glitter,” she replied.
“Glitter isn’t actually from nature,” I said. “It’s man-made.”
Libby paused to consider that statement.
“That’s funny,” she said. “I thought glitter would be girl-made, not man-made, because it’s so pretty.”
Where does one begin to unravel that logic?
Sometimes you’ve just got to let these things pass with a smile.
Then blog about them for posterity.
