I find it interesting to talk with my young children
they clarity is balanced by their blindness
so often when they see something it is as if they are seeing it for the first time
this can happen with snow... a roller coaster... or a certain type of food

adages and idioms are interesting

when watching movies... even children's movies it is interesting how much the children are able to understand
often in dialogue the specifics are missed while the context is understood
this unfamiliarity with adages and idioms can be made visible when we play Apples to Apples or Cadoo (cranium for kids)
many of the questions involve old adages and idioms that we as adults take for granted
while the children are hearing them for the first time
