Do you believe that children have a secret language that they use to tell adults what they want? I am trying to figure out exactly what it is that our granddaughter, Sophie, is trying to say here. She passed up the lobster, the crabs, the steaks, the ice cream, and the frozen food at the Louisiana Children's Museum grocery store and started clearing out the vegetable section.
You heard me. She cleared it out. They weren't having a sale on veggies, so that couldn't be it. Maybe she was just attracted by the color. Or maybe by the grab-able sizes.
Notice the bandanged foot. Maybe she was trying to tell us veggies will help make it heal.
I don't know what the message was. I guess adults are just slow to understand what kids are trying to tell us.
