Kate is learning about the body at school. One of her most recent lessons was on the five senses. She was sitting in her top bunk and said to me, “Mom, what would happen if I didn’t have a brain?” I said what do you mean? She said “If I didn’t have a brain, which of my five senses could I use?” I said Ummmm…. none because your senses work with your brain. Kate said, “YOU are RIGHT Mom!” That’s so good. So, if I broke my knee, my knee would tell my brain that it was hurt and broken, then my brain would tell it to get better.
Mom, it’s kinda like the scarecrow if you don’t have a brain.
