I have no idea if there is some hidden meaning behind this...
It is cold, we have just had a week of record breaking snow.
Yet I looked out the kitchen window yesterday to see my sweet girl, my only daughter, my precious female offspring doing...?
I opened the back door to hear this little ditty being sung...
"Its spring, its spring, the sun is out...so you must go and you better not pout."
She was dancing around the remains of a snowman. With each verse she would take a stick and whack at the poor melting man of snow.
She did all of this dressed in one of her grandma's nightgowns, a sunhat, and barefeet...in November, on a sunny but cold almost winter's day!
So what is a mother to think of all of this?
Have I failed her as her homeschool teacher for she obviously does not know her seasons...honey it is fall, almost winter not spring.
Have I failed her as a mother as she obviously does not know how to dress appropriately for the weather...sweetie it is cold out there, you might want a coat, and mittens, and maybe some pants.
Have I failed her as a human being for she obviously has no respect for minorities such as people made of snow...darling it is not nice to whack others on the head just because you think they are seasonably out of place.
Or could it just be...
Yes it obviously is...
That this little apple has not fallen far from her family tree.
A strange slightly twisted, obviously crazy family tree.
