Lately Rosa has been challenging me with all these difficult how and why questions. Like why her knee bleeds when she falls, how it's possible that a refrigerator makes everything cold or why there's smoke coming from a kettle of boiling water. Turns out I hardly know the answers myself, let alone that I can come up with an explanation that makes sense to a three-year-old ;).
A challenge of a whole different kind is the 'draw me...' challenge: mama, could you draw me a dinosaur, a helicopter, a crane, a tractor, a cow, a dog...? And then it's funny to notice that though I see things like dogs and cranes almost every day, I often have no idea how to draw them in a proper way. So lately I've been practicing this 'drawing stuff I don't usually draw' thing, like cats... And now I can't stop making cat plates ;).
