This morning Alexander was mowing the back yard while Sophia and I did some work in the front. Sophia is always fascinated by weeds. As with all things in nature, she sees the beauty in them and has a hard time pulling them and ending their lives. Today she saw an interesting one that reminded her of a pumpkin plant. I reminded her of how overgrown our yard is right now and to "please just pull it." She said, "This is probably the cure for arthritis."
