Distracting Fruit

Today, Holly and Rosie and Daddy went to Box Hill for an explore. We saw a green dragonfly very close on a branch and Daddy tried to explain where it was without pointing at it and scaring it away.

Immediately afterwards Rosie said "Look over there", and described where a blackberry was.

Daddy: "You mean that blackberry?"
Rosie: "Yes. I did not point at it because I did not want to distract* it from growing."

*Well, no-one says "distract" at the moment. We say "extract" actually, but we wouldn't want to confuse the story...
