While driving home from school yesterday my son and I watched the biggest snowflakes flit and fall to the ground. We were mesmerized and silent. He broke this moment of quiet with the most fascinating theory.
Boy: Mom, could you please press the button that takes us up to the top of the trees.
Me: What button honey?
Boy: Y'know, the button that makes the car go up to the tippy top of the trees. So that I can talk to G-d.
Me: (thoroughly eager to see where this goes) Sure, I think that button is right over.....here. (I hesitate and wonder if the hazard or the defrost are more the more appropriate button then I ask what he will do when he talks to G-d)
Boy: I want to ask him to ask Mother Nature to turn off the snow so we can see a little better.
Me: Ahh, gotcha. (totally amazed that I've helped to create such a wonderful sense of imagination and intrigue)
That is one powerful button. This must be an upgrade on the minivan I wasn't aware of...It certainly makes it seem well worth the pricetag we paid.
