Yesterday, when I arrived to pick L up from work, AM had an interesting question. She said, “Mommy, why do those trucks stick their heads in a hole?” She had me completely boggled until I looked over at the warehouse where many large trucks had backed up to drop off a load. They had detached the truck fronts from the trailors, so to young eyes, it looked like they had pulled their fronts up into the building! It was really weird to get this new perspective on it. If I didn’t know any better, I might have thought the same thing!
Interesting how what we know in our minds sometimes keeps us from seeing things from a different perspective. Anyway, I explained to her what had happened and told her she would have to watch a truck back up and detach sometime. She probably will not fully understand until she sees it for herself. Maybe I’ll try to draw her a picture to illustrate. Nah! She won’t be able to tell what the picture is of! She would probably re-draw my picture and make it look better!! Oh well! Maybe I’ll try drawing it anyway. Her ability to draw it better might be good for me!
