A Conversation with Christian, (when 4 yrs old)
Christian Mommy, I think I know where the rain comes from.
Me: Oh? Where do you think the rain comes from?
Christian: I think it comes from when the earth gets sad. I think it rains when the earth cries.
Me: Why do you think the earth is sad?
Christian: Because all of the other planets that are bigger… they won’t let him play any games with them.
Me: Oh? Why not?
Christian: Because they are bigger and they don’t like to share their toys with the earth.
Me: Oh, I see. Do you think “Mommy Earth” should go into your room and make the other kids share their toys with you?
Christian: I think you should. I don’t want it to rain today.
