The other day Campbell and I saw a tractor driving on the road. She was fascinated by that and wanted to know where it was going and what it was going to do when it arrived. I explained that it was probably going to a field to get the ground ready to grow some crops. “Crops?” she asked.

“Yes, crops are foods grown on a farm like corn and beans.”

“Crops?” she asked again.

“Yes, farmers grow crops.”

“Like for your feet?”


And then it occured to me that she was saying Crocs. No wonder she kept asking…
