As Kids See It

Reader's Digest International - - Con­tents - MAR­I­LYN PEN­LEY @KALV­IN­MACLEOD RITA HICKEY

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.

“I got into a fight with Emily over what color we should make our friend­ship bracelets.”
