Three year olds can be exhausting. They have boundless energy, endless curiosity, and in Sandra's case a wonderful imagination. Yesterday she accompanied me and her Opa as we ran some errands. After lunch, in an attempt to have some quiet time, she settled to watch a movie. Movie done, we sit in the dining room colouring. Suddenly, she looks at me and asks, "Grandma, why are there carrots hanging in the trees?" It was a very windy day (90 km/h gusts) so there was a lot ove movement in the trees beside the house. I was baffled. Carrots? In the trees? I looked out the window, still puzzled. Finally I scrunched down beside her and asked here where she saw these carrots. As she pointed, I burst out laughing. She saw the pine cone dangling in the trees. Yes, they did resemble carrots. Have you ever noticed how much a pine cone hanging in a tree can resemble a carrot?
