My Little Nut

This is what Ty brought home from daycare today.

His socks, obviously, but they're full of nuts.

"What are you going to do with the nuts?" I asked him.

"I'm going to make a nut store," he replied.

"Oh really?  Are you going to sell nuts for planting or for eating?"

"For planting.  That way people can plant them and grow nut trees."

"Oh," I commented.  "So you're going to be kind-of like a forester?"

He turned to me seriously, "Mama, do you know that being a forester is dangerous?"

I looked at him equally as serious, "It is?  What makes it so dangerous?"

"You could be in the forest and a tree could fall and a nut could hit you on the head and there could be a forest fire.  All at the same time.  And you could be knocked out on the ground and you could die.  It could really happen."

"Oh my," I commented.

"So that's why I'd rather play in the woods than the forest."
