Talking Back: Cole, Age 2

We’ve had a mysterious and astute toddler visitor in recent months, known to us only as “Cole, Age 2," who has left several philosophical and eloquent notes in response to queries on our talk back boards:

How do you play with dirt and mud?

What kind of art do you make?

The knowledge – and penmanship – represented in these messages are truly impressive for such a young child. Cole, it’s clear that you’ve experienced a great deal in your first two years, and we eagerly await your next correspondence.

A follow-up note from Cole, age 2 – a response to the question "How do you play in the snow?"

"Once I get enough snow down my gloves and boots to become pre-hypothermic, I thoroughly enjoy building ice sculptures of my favorite creatures... such as an enthusiastic unicorn, a friendly jack-a-lope, or an emotionally content yedi. I then eat handfuls of snow until I'm nauseous.

– A now famous Cole Age 2"
