Speaking of Perspective…

“Did you have fun camping Kaya?” I ask.

“Yah.” Pause.

“But I don’t want to go there again because there are too many mosquitoes.”

“Yes, there were a lot. But we should try to remember all the good stuff that happened camping too and not just focus on the one bad thing. Can you tell me your favourite part about camping?”

I’m expecting her to answer something along the lines of butterflies, motorhome play, canoe rides, Smores but instead get an emphatic,

“Smashing the mosquitoes!”
