The mind of a three year old is such a wonder!
This morning - on our way out the door - doing my best to load both girls plus all of our necessary crap into the car without losing my mind - Natalie made an awesome observation and asked,
"Hey, mommy, why is da 'ky touch-ing d-ose t'ees?"
Such a question gave me pause and caused me to follow her gaze to the tall trees across the street ... the tops of which were covered with a morning fog. It did, indeed, look the clouds (aka the sky) was touching the trees.
Of course, I then did my very best impersonation of an elementary science teacher and tried to explain the phenomenon of fog ... how it is kind of like a cloud ... and why it happens closer to the ground/trees.
Based on the complete look of confusion on her face, I think she drew a much better (and simpler) conclusion,
"Mommy, it's v-ery cloudy today, huh?"
