elbow

-"Oma, what is this?"
-"That's your elbow ,sweetie?"
-"Does opa has an elbow too?"
-"Yes, dear, we all have?"
-"Why we have an elbow?"
-"To bow our arms. Otherwise our arms would be like this."
I stretch my arm, she does the same with both her little arms.
She is quiet now, i know she is thinking.
-"Oma, we have an elbow in our legs too?"
-"Kind of yes, it is your little knee."
She stretched her legs and is laying like a stuffed toy on my bed.
Her little mind works like mad.
-"Otherwise you can not hold me, that's why!"
She snuggles in my arms, making sure that my elbows are bent around her.
Little princess falls asleep.
Life is simple.

That is a beautiful story! Childrens questions are so beautiful! But Oma is the one with the true beauty. The beauty of wisdom. To transform a question into a lesson and a moment. Thank you Oma!
