A two year old mind
We all know that kids can be funny. They are amusing little creatures. Yesterday, I was driving to church and two of the grandchildren were in the car with me. We passed a field and there were three deer playing. They were jumping and bouncing around and they were getting awful close to the road. I slowed down the car so the kids could get a better look and made the remark that I was afraid to drive by them because they might dart in front of my car.
My 7 year old grandson asked me what would happen if I honked at them. He thought that perhaps it would startle them enough that they would run back across the field or cross the road so we could move safely pass. I thought "What the heck?" so I tooted the horn. They completely stopped what they were do and all three turned to stare at me. I could see it on their faces, it was as if they were saying "What????" It was cute. They were still; so we drove on. About 5 minutes later, we pass a cow pasture and in an excited voice, my 2 year old granddaughter says: "Mamaw B, there's cows. Honk at them!" Guess she didn't quite understand the horn concept with the deer.
I tooted the horn and continued down the road. Did the cows even notice? Not so much. But as we were passing them, the little 2 year old says "Why don't I see a pink cow?" Oh, the mind of a two year old.
