Other than the silence, and needing a GPS once leaving the city limits, this country living has other hilarious effects on our daily life. My child had his own commentary on our new location, giving his suburban 'roots' a kick in the pants:
While driving through an open, grassy area back to my dad's house we hear my son say, "Mom, I smell something stinky." Now I don't have the best nose but my dad and I didn't smell anything odd or 'stinky'. No farmland smells of manure or whatever, I mean, it's not like we're that rural...at least not where we were driving at the time. So I'm really trying to figure out what he's referring to while I ask him 20 questions. I can only smell fresh air, trees, and new spring grass when I breath in deeply! It smelled wonderful.
It then dawned on me that my child was calling the clean-smelling spring day...stinky! Oh my.
