Quote of the Week

"People are EXACTLY like trees. Except trees have branches and leaves. And they're made out of wood. And they're really tall! And they live outside." -Connor

FYI, he's been extremely obsessed with trees lately, and how they make air, wanting to know why people cut them down, worrying people will cut down too many, wondering how they grow so tall, wondering how they know how to grow, etc etc etc. On Friday, he got into this line of questioning/commenting about how people are all different from each other, and how that makes us each special, etc. He continued the conversation by saying the quoted sentences at the beginning of this blog post. When I then questioned him HOW people were exactly like trees, he said, "Because each one is different and special, just like people!"

Adorable!

It just cracked me up how he emphasized that people and trees are EXACTLY alike, then followed it with a long list of exceptions. LOL But it all came together in the end and I was able to follow his line of thinking. My sweet Little Man!!!
