TTT - A New Name for the Sit and Spin

On our way to Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving, I was sitting beside David (age 4) in the van; and I enjoyed the chance to spend some time talking with--and listening to--him. At one point he said, "I had a dream about a daddy deer and a mommy deer and there were cubs and a nest..." OK, so baby deer are called cubs, and they live in a nest? Looks like we need to spend a little more time on science in our homeschool curriculum!


We were discussing the plans for our next family night; and since it's in honor of me, I need to decide where we'll eat. David was surprised that I started mentioning restaurants and questioned me, "Aren't YOU supposed to be the cooker??" The pressure cooker, maybe. ;)


Somewhere along the way as we were riding along he said sweetly, "I want you to live close to my house when I grow up." That boy melts my heart on a daily basis.


On another occasion, the boys and I were playing in the living room together one evening while we waited for Jeff to get home from work, and Josiah (age 7) blurted out, "Tobin's been too long on the Spit and Sin!" The Spit and Sin? Hmmm. Now that's a ride I wouldn't want to spend much time on!

I hope you are blessed with the opportunity to be parenting toddlers and teenagers!
