"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

The Vacuum vs. The Volcano

Gabe has been obsessed with volcanoes lately. The other day we spent a long time talking about dormant volcanoes and how they were "asleep" because he saw an episode of Diego that focused on underwater volcanoes.

Today, we were watching Max and Ruby today and Ruby made a paper mache volcano. Gabe insisted I make him a paper volcano. I tried to tell him I couldn't but, the more I said no, the more insistent he got. So, finally, it dawned on me that I could roll the paper like I was making a cone for a paper party hat and just leave the top open. Then, Gabe took the "volcano" and put it on the floor. He told me that the "volcano was a mountain that exploded and red hot lava runs down the side. See?" Hehehe, Gabe told me the volcano exploded all over my floor and made a mess. Then he said he had to vacuum up the mess the volcano made and went and got his toy vacuum to clean up after the volcano.

Does he think you could clean up after a real volcano that way?
He is sooo creative.
