My three-year-old learns about winter and decides she prefers summer
In the summer, all you can see out her window is leaves. The leaves are turning red now, which led to this conversation last week.
M: Daddy, my leaves are supposed to be green.
Me: They're turning red now because summer is over. It's Fall. Soon all the leaves will fall off for the winter.
M: Can you make them green again?
Me: No. But after winter, green leaves will come back.
M: I want the green leaves back.
Me: We can't get them back. You'll have to wait for the new leaves in the Spring.
M (disappointed): Oh.
