car talk :: the magic of fall

so, i'm not sure why, but lately when we are in the car me and bb (the 4Y.O.) and i have the best conversations. he's really become such good company!

on the way to school is the best. it's early. it's quiet and everything is new again.

a couple of days ago he said, "mommy, how do the leaves change color?"

"i'm not sure. what do you think about it?"

***pause***

"well, i think that there must be an animal who lives inside the tree....not a big animal, animal like a dinosaur, but a small nice one like a sheep or a racoon and they come out and take all the leaves and bring them into the tree and paint them, then put them back out!"

of course.

i love his imagination.

This is probably the best explanation I've ever heard. It reminds me that before answering, I should always ask for Sam's theory first.
