“What is it, Mommy?”

“I’m not sure. I know it’s a cog wheel, but I don’t know its use.”

“The wood is big and thick, Mommy.”

“Yes.  If your daddy were here, he would know what this does.”

“What does the white post do?”

“It looks as if it holds up the whole structure, doesn’t it? “

“What’s a cog wheel?”

“It’s a wheel with tabs that connect with another cog wheel. When the tabs connect, the wheels keep turning.”

“Why?”

“So you can ask me lots of questions.”

  1. This would be an interesting way instead of the usual birds and bees … OK, well, maybe not.

    But, STILL … a very realistic conversation. I enjoyed it very much, Linda.

    I like the image of a parent, and a child talking. Thank heavens for inquisitive children, they certainly keep us on our toes.
