Why Rain?

I can't help but laugh at how the minds of little kids work. They are always so curious and innocent. The way they put things together seems so silly to us sometimes but makes perfect sense to them. Jenna is definitely a talker! This morning on the way to the babysitter she asked me why it had to rain. Seems like a simple question to answer but how do you explain it to a 2 1/2 year old. I asked her if she eats and drinks to grow big and strong and she said yes. So I told her that the rain is what God feeds the grass, trees and flowers so they can grow big and strong. She looked at me inquisitively before blurting out "no it's not mom, they don't have plates and cups". I had no answer but to laugh.
