So, summer has fully arrived. Not just the weather, but also the joy of spending nearly every hour with our beautiful children.
And I love them! They constantly surprise and amaze me.
Just last weekend, as the four of us drove somewhere, Little A. said, "Mom?"
And I smiled. And I said, "Yes?"
And he mumbled something.
"What did you say?"
"I said, never mind!"
Well, okay then.
And then S. leans over in the backseat, not even really bothering to be too quiet, and says to him with delight in her voice, "I love doing that, too."
About two hours into the Great Road Trip of 2017, Little A. once again pipes up.
"Traveling is great for getting out into the world and...and...
Oh my gosh, this is gonna be good. All our efforts will pay off in chunks of wisdom picked up while traveling.
"I mean, it's nice to get out and see things in real life, you know. Things like, like ..."
This will be enlightened! Wise! Life-changing! Oooh, I can't wait...
"I really like seeing real things, like billboards for all the companies they advertise on the radio."
Speaking of signs, let's end on a positive note. A little contribution from one of our Philadelphia contributors to remind us that empathy is the key!
