looking out.

The good thing about imagination is, there is no wrong answer. I hope I can nurture Rowan in these terms.


That could be us sailing out in the Monterey Bay. We'd start our morning ashore with bowl-sized lattes and zucchini bread. Soon we'd wave to the sea otters, swing our feet in the Pacific, and get a little sun. For lunch, we'd spread out wrinkled olives, green grapes and red strawberries, goat cheese, fig jam, and sourdough baguette. I would start to peel the skin off the cucumber, but S would take the knife and cucumber away when I peel it all the way down to the seeds. I would say this is another argument in favor of buying me a vegetable peeler.

In this story, R is still breastfeeding only. (Though one day this week, he will eat his first sweet potatoes.) But he could be old enough to eat grapes too, old enough to clink his sippy cup against our plastic wine goblets. In that version we'd toast and all eat our fill. I'd ask him: What do you see? And he'd respond.

What do you see?

"The good thing about imagination is, there is no wrong answer." -- Good point to start with the little ones! :)

I see the boat in the distance, water water water and, for some reason, feel like I'm standing on the shores of the Puget Sound. My favorite place on earth.

What a lovely story. You can never go wrong with a little imagination. That quote is a great lesson to teach the little one. :)
