chasing rainbows...

...in the backyard

As the Baggy Eyed Tortoise was taking a stroll with her kids, she heard a funny voice from behind: "Mommy, can I have a rainbow to play with?" - it was the Baggy Eyed Tortoise Baby no.4 (she gave each of them an identification number, because she wasn't really creative in the naming department).

"Well", she started saying..."you know" - the mum didn't know how to break it to the baby, as she knew it was impossible. But she found herself saying "Hell, why not?" - and joined her little one's jump of joy.

You see, the Baggy Eyed Tortoise used to read a lot of parenting books as she was young - and they say it's bad for the kid's psychology to refuse him something. So she brought them all up thinking everything is do-able and reach-able. Like climbing on grass and getting your own rainbow. We agree :)
