Laugh

Yesterday the dd started whimpering in the back of the car as we were stopped at a traffic light. I asked what was wrong and she replied she was scared. I asked what of???? She pointed to the truck next to us in the queue which contained orange cooking gas cylinders. I didn't see what could frighten her about this then I read the name of the company of the door of the truck........Al Boom Gas!

I might have to use that in this weeks chapter of Explosive Dreams but then maybe not as Al Boom is just a last name like Smith........

My middle dd sleeps with the light on. We asked her the other day when we were driving why and she looked very serious and said, 'I'm not afraid of the dark.' So of course we then asked why she needed the light and she answered somewhat huffily. 'I'm afraid of the things that might be in the dark.'

Out of the mouths of babes and ? I forget the rest. But it made me laugh as did nell's comment.

SInce they're grown up, my girls have told me of things they were afraid of as children that make my jaw drop. Their minds make connections we just don't see.

Nell - she is so right!!!

Yes the things kids come up with, Sheepish. I kept a list of many of them that my lot have come out with.....maybe someday I will post them :-)

I love the way kids look at the world - it's almost pure in its vision, CS
