Every fall, Ruby becomes fascinated with the dried up leaves blowing up on our deck. They’re a source of endless entertainment for her, as you can see in the video below. She spends hours sitting by the sliding glass doors watching them blow by.
Ruby: Allegra, look! Look at all these creatures out there! They’re running and jumping all over the deck! Help me catch them! Wee!!!!
Allegra: rolls eyes. They’re just leaves, Ruby.
Ruby: So? We’ve got to make sure they don’t come inside! We have to protect Mom!
Interestingly, Ruby shows absolutely no interest in the leaves when I bring a few inside for her.
