Kids know more than we realize...

My little almost 8 year old daughter drew this tonight
- all on her own -
for her little brother....
A picture of New York City.
She was very proud of it...and yeah, she should be - she's a great little artist, regardless. I just didn't know what to say. I asked her what made her think to draw that for New York, and she said she didn't know, she just remembers that "those buildings burned and fell down" and she knows that "some people were killed"... She was only 14 months old when it happened, and it's not like she's been exposed to much about it, but... Anyway, she was in a perfectly good mood when she showed me this, so I will just chalk it up to her wanting to draw yet another picture for her baby brother! But this one's going in the memory box for sure.
