Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

I bought tulips for the dining room table for Easter. Last week, they were looking tired and sad to say the least.

Lucas had other ideas.

Me: Lucas, look at those tulips.
Lucas: What about them?
Me: It's time for some new flowers.
Lucas: I think they look beautiful. Look at the design that the praying mantis made on them. (The night before Kevin let his praying mantis roam around on them)
Me: Which design?
Lucas: See, how all the leaves are going all over the place. It looks beautiful.
Me: Yes, it does look kind of neat.

I waited till the next day when he was at school to toss the flowers. I replaced them with some from our yard.
