Wednesday was a lovely fall day. The kids asked me to take them to the park. Now, I have to admit that when we go to our park, I tend to just turn them loose and sit on a sunny bench and read. However, it was too brisk to sit on a cold concrete bench, so I decided to join them on their adventure. You see, our park has a little forest. I was so pleasantly surprised at how lovely the little trail was! It is definitely a photo opportunity.
Anyway, Popcorn found one of those pods with large seeds in them that some trees have. I don't know what they're called. But, no, they're not locust trees. The pods were about an inch wide and the seeds were bigger than lima beans...Anyway, one of the seeds was sprouting.
"I'm going to go home and plant it! Then we will FINALLY have a climbing tree at our house!"
"Honey, it takes like ten years for a tree to get big enough to climb."
"Fine. Then I will wait until I'm 19 to plant it."
So that was odd reasoning...
"Why don't you just plant it now, and then when your kids are growing up they can climb it?"
"Ufff! Fine! Then I will have to be overprotective and go out and watch them...It will be so ANNOYING! Gosh!"
And I burst out laughing.
Her brain is weird.
