Out of the mouth of the babe

My daughter and I were up early this morning and went down to breakfast by ourselves. I asked her what she wanted this morning and instead of telling me, she said:

Give me the beat boys and free my soul. I want to get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.

I was kind of surprised and I asked her where she learned that. She said, "the car, Pappa, the car taught it to me".

So amused.

That is incredibly sweet, Random. I'm impressed, too, because she got the lyrics right. And her comment about the car teaching her the sone just turned me to mush. Ah...you're so lucky right now. :-)

After teaching teenagers for a year or so, I thought about putting off having kids for a while, but then I read your stories about yours--and I think "maybe it won't be such a bad thing to have kids".

(I used to want kids *alot* and then I started teaching, and realize I have many! Of course, they're all in that difficult puberty stage!)

I'm glad you all are enjoying the stories so much. I feel blessed in general and particularly grateful to have a smart child.

Amanda, don't forget that I am mostly writing about the good moments!
