4 year old Tori spotted a plant in the burned area of the prairie. It was taller and thicker than anything next to it and she showed it to me. I told her that it was a milkweed plant. Being 4, she said she thought a "Juice-weed" would be better. So, I demonstrated why we call it a milkweed by breaking the stem so she could seed the milky liquid inside. We even tore a leaf to see that the "milk" went all the way out to the edges.

What fun to share the world with children!
