Where Does Rain Come From?

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.
