…the way little kids think.
Yesterday at lunch, one of my four-year-olds turned to me and said, “There was an earthquake in Chile you know”. I was impressed – who knew that little ones pick up on stuff like world news? Anyway, the conversation continued…
“Want to know what an earthquake is? An earthquake is when the earth has a quake. A quake is a big ball that rolls in the earth, and bumps into Africa. Africa bumps into the rest of the world, and that is a quake. The whole world shakes.”
I LOVE that. A quake starts out as a ball that shakes the world. I need to revert back to my four-year-old mind more often; what a fun and different way to think of the world!
