In the car while listening to "My Favorite Things" on the radio: Me: What are some of your favorite things, Ruby?
Me: What else?
...now I need to rethink this whole Christmas gift thing.
Same trip with Ruby asking questions about EVERYTHING i.e. "why are there sidewalks?" "What if there were no trees?":
Ruby: Why do we have hands?
Me: Well, they are very useful. Our hands help us dress, eat and do other things. How do you think you would eat if you didn't have hands.
Ruby is silent for a moment and then gravely says: "No cheese."
So there you have it. We must all be thankful that we have hands and can eat cheese. Merry Christmas to all!
