As Kids See It
ONE MORNING while visiting his grandparents in Calgary, my threeyear-old son, Graham, asked his grandmother if he could pick berries in the backyard.
“Not in your PJs!” she responded. Two minutes later, she heard the screen door close and turned to find Graham’s PJs in a tidy pile by the door. PARENTING IS LIKE being a juggler except all the balls are screaming. YOUNG CHILDREN HAVE a unique superpower: place a toddler in a queen-sized bed and they will find a sleeping position that ensures no one else can fit in there with them.
