(outside on a sunny day)
Hank: Mama? Whatchadoing?
Me: See this moss growing here on the veranda? I am collecting it and replanting it so that I can add moss to your play garden this spring.
Hank: Oh! I like that idea. I think my playmobil would like to sit on this soft green moss.
Me: That is what I thought. Hey, wow… look at this. Do you see this?
Hank: What, this hair?
Me: Yes. Who has hair this color?
Me: Who has hair this long?
Me: Moss collects bits and bobs the help give it structure and stability. This moss has collected my hair. See it is in it’s roots. This moss has grown this winter in the damp and gray days. My hair must have blown from our laundry and the moss has found a use for it. Isn’t that cool?
Hank: Yes. And now I will use it for my imagination!
Hank: Wow, too.
