Not Just Smellin' Roses

My 7-year-old daughter asked me the other day what I  would change about the world. I gave some not-very-creative stock good-parent answers: world hunger, war, more hugs.

Her response?

No, no, no. I meant what would you change about the world like when you open the door and look outside?

Ah, the physical world.

Before I could answer...

I know what I would change. I would have all the grass and trees be made of Nutella. So, I could just go outside and take a huge bite. I wouldn't have to spread it on bread or dip anything into it. Just bite right into it.

This is why I am grateful everyday for those loud, crazy little people in our house. I'm not stopping to smell some nice, sweet roses.

I'm take a huge bite out of a Nutella tree.
