Conversations with Ruby

In the car while listening to "My Favorite Things" on the radio: Me: What are some of your favorite things, Ruby?

Ruby: Binoculars

Me: What else?

Ruby: Trash

...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!

That is awesome. I have a feeling Ruby and Sam would really get along... Merry Christmas y'all!
