Liberty and I walk the neighborhood. She asks if we can knock on some doors and say “hi” to the neighbors. I say we can say “hi” if we see them in their yard today or out walking like we are.
Out of the clear blue sky she asks, “How can people have kids if they aren’t married?” Wow – what a loaded question! That was kind of her to save it for me. I think this question is one to be saved for her Mom and Dad.
Later on the walk, she spotted some acorns. I was able to explain that the squirrels gathered and hoarded these away for their winter food. At least I could answer that question without fumbling too much.
Never a dull moment in the life of a 4-year old and those loved ones who surround them!
