A conversation with this child...
She: Should I put a band-aid on this?
Me: What? That two week-old, 4-centimeter scab?
She: Yeah. It hurts when I touch it.
Me: Don't touch it. (Yes, I have a dual degree in rocket science and child behavior)
She: But, I can't help it. I don't know why. If I put a band-aid on it, THEN I wouldn't touch it.
Me: (with a puzzled look on my face) If you keep your eyes closed does that keep you from sticking knives in them?
She: (walking away) Yeah well, I think I'm going to put a band-aid on it.
Me: I think you should.
These conversations happen a lot.
Smiles from the farm,
