Guess what I saw

I got home last night and eagerly wanted to share with Reuben and Joshua my exciting news.

“Reuben, Joshua—can you guess what daddy saw on his way to work this morning? I’ll give you a clue: it was coming out of a farm.”

What I’d seen was a huge tractor pulling a trailer and on the trailer was a very large, yellow digger. What two year old could be unimpressed by such a spectacle?

Joshua pondered it over for a moment before his face lit up and he exclaimed “an ELEPHANT!”

A tractor pulling a digger on a trailer now didn’t seem quite so exciting after all. Certainly not in comparison with my son’s imagination.
