This evening, Ollie and I were sitting on the dirt pile looking for the biggest dirt balls we could find, and Smokey came walking into the yard. Ollie ran over to him asking in his very fetching way, "Smokey, you wanna come throw dirt balls with us?" He kept asking Smokey, but Smokey didn't seem interested. I explained to Ollie that cats can't throw dirt balls because they don't have hands like we do. They have paws. Ollie looked at Smokey's paws then at his own hands saying, "Smokey has paws. I have hands." And he held up his dirty hands for me to see. "Smokey can't throw dirt balls." He momentarily regarded Smokey with a look of pity. Then he trotted back to join me on the pile until it was too dark to see, throwing dirt balls to our heart's content, including all the sound effects.

And that story is the perfect illustration of why I love parenting and grandparenting so much. Teaching, and watching the light go on in their little heads.

Ollie is VERY smart!
