Why do Trees Grow?

We were in the car running errands today when Future President asked, “Mommy, why do trees grow?” I explained that the sun and rain feeds them, just like food does for him.

A few minutes later Future President told Junior, “Baby Brother, trees grow tall because of sun and rain. Like you when you drink milk.” And he said it with such sincerity and belief that Junior could understand.

He’s been a big brother for a month and while we’ve had some bumpy roads, I am hopeful that there is more love than jealousy. Tonight he even tried to put a Christmas bow on baby’s head.

Happy one month to our family of four.
