The other day, we were sitting around our table eating dinner. I had recently picked some homegrown lettuce leaves that were just big enough to eat with our dinner. My 3 year old asked me,
“Where did this tiny salad (how he refers to lettuce) come from?”
I explained that it was from the seeds I had planted, that we had grown it, expecting him to be impressed. He has previously loved gardening and harvesting. Instead I got this,
“You didn’t buy it at the store?”
“No.” I answered.
