Lessons from the Bus Stop
My husband and I have the pleasure of walking our 5 year old granddaughter Maeve to the bus stop every morning. The conversations are always interesting and enlightening.
Today the conversation was about being resourceful.
Maeve: “Grandma my favourite fruit is melon, blueberries, pineapple, strawberries......what’s yours?"
Grandma: “Hmmmm my favourite fruit would have to be pineapple."
Maeve: "I like that too."
Grandma: "Do you remember up at the cottage when we went to our secret blueberry patch to pick fresh blueberries?"
Maeve: "Yes, that was so much fun. Quinn and I had blueberries all over our face. Did Daddy send you the picture?"
Grandma: “Yes. But why were the blueberries all over your face? You were supposed to pick the blueberries and put them in the bowl."
Maeve: “Quinn and I decided to use our mouth as the bowl. It was easier than holding the bowl and eating them later.”
