James and I ventured out to the farmer's market this week, where we picked up lots of lovely, local, organic produce. At one of the stands there were boxes of potatoes, picked fresh that very afternoon, low enough for James to reach. 5lbs for $4? We were all over it. Naturally, James chose the funniest potatoes he could find. "Wook, mom! I got a funny duh-ta-to!"
I was excited a few days later, when I realized that James could take his funny potato for show-and-tell at school. They are encouraged to bring things with educational value, especially things from nature. No toys allowed. James was excited, too. When he got in the car after school, I asked him how show-and-tell was. "It was awesome. I make my funny duh-ta-to be a gun!" How convenient.
