This child always makes me smile:
The other day we were heading to New York City.....listening to music, talking. We get off of the turnpike and 'bam'...Traffic.
I say "Oh no, we hit traffic"
a few moments later I get a question from Emma Sage.
"Mommy, what is traffic?"
I turn back to look at her, and her sweet little face is full of interest.
I explain that all the cars trying to merge together and get into on lane [and not moving] is traffic. She then asks me "How I hit it" to which I explain that it was just a figure of speech, that I really did not 'hit' it, but we approached it and are now stuck in it.
She is just so observant. We live in a rural area, and don't travel often in the car to congested areas, so she really did not know what 'traffic' was......
But now she does!!!!
