On numerous occasions over the course of the summer, Alice and The Dada talked about our unseasonably dry weather. Alice being the thoughtful kidling she is and The Dada being the well-informed dad he is, they had some detailed conversations. You see, The Dada is the one responsible for Alice telling her daycare teachers about the floods in Japan. I, well… I’m just glad he was the one on the receiving end of these inquisitions.
Until Saturday. On Saturday Alice asked me about our summer weather.
Alice: Why did we have a drought this summer?
The Mama: I don’t really know, Alice.
Alice: Maybe because Europe got the water and we didn’t!
Something like that.
