Margot's imagination is constantly developing entrepreneurial ideas (that is definitely Brodie's disposition shining through).

For instance, a few months ago she had a brilliant idea for a 'towel-less' bathroom. Her idea was that she would step out of the shower/bath and a blow dryer would blast her with warm air, instantly drying her skin and eliminating the need for a towel.

I personally thought this would be a great idea for high-end hotels, and wondered if the energy needed to run the dryer would be better than the water wasted in laundering all those towels every day. Innovative AND green! (Brodie thought this idea already exists somewhere.)

This morning it is pouring out (April showers...). As we pulled out of our neighborhood on our way to preschool/work, Margot saw a girl waiting at her busstop. The girl had a raincoat on to stay dry, but Min noted her backpack was getting soaked.

"What if there could be some kind of umbrella holder on a backpack so it could stay dry?" asked Margot. "Or what if a backpack had hands so it could hold its own umbrella?"

I smiled at that.

OR make backpacks out of the same material as raincoats
