A Sister's Wisdom

Thursday, August 19, 2010

It's quite endearing and also very entertaining when these two try to figure things out on their own.
At lunch today, Piper was picking the sesame seeds off her cheeseburger bun and making a neat pile on her plate. "Geneva, we could plant these in the dirt and grow lunch," she announced.
"What would we grow?" Geneva asked.
"Cheeseburgers. These are cheeseburger seeds," she replied simply.
"Piper, cheeseburgers do not grow from seeds," informed Geneva.
"Where do they come from then?" Piper wanted to know.
"Mom, where do cheeseburgers come from?" Geneva inquired.
(Hmm... What to do...?)
"Cows," I said busying myself with some unimportant task.
... {thoughtful silence} ... 
"Cheeseburgers come from cows?" asked Piper.
"Yes," answered Geneva matter-of-factly. "Cows are chefs."

(Good enough for now? I hope so.)
