Conversation with my 8 year old M2:
M2: Dad, what’s a greenhouse?
Dad: A greenhouse is a house made of glass. You need in order to grow plants and make sure they are protected.
Me: You know, if we had a lot of space, I’d love having a greenhouse. It means I can grow tomatoes and other vegetables all year round and not worry about the rain and all the insects.
M2: Mom, I can build you a greenhouse.
Me (wondering if he misunderstood me) : Huh ? It’s not that easy to build a greenhouse.
M2: Yes, it is. I can build you one in my world.
Me (now I am confused) : Your world?
M2: Yeah, in Minecraft. I can build you a greenhouse and even help you grow vegetables.
Me: Ah thank you. It’s so sweet of you, but I was thinking of real tomatoes and vegetables that we could eat 🙂
