Beyond Blue

Yesterday on the way to David’s kindergarten:
“Mommy, why are we walking to school today?”
“There are going to be a lot of cars downtown because the leaders of 40 different countries are going to meet at the Naval Academy. . . . Do you see all the helicopters in the sky? They are all coming right now.”
“Why do they have to come here?”
“That’s a good question. I guess it’s kind of like if you and Katherine were fighting over a snow globe, or some cool toy, and you both say it’s yours . . . Daddy or Mommy or a babysitter would eventually have to get involved and try to help you resolve it.”
“What are they fighting about?”
“That’s a great question to ask your dad when he gets home from work tonight . . . . Aren’t the helicopters cool?”
