Joyful Car Ride #1:
Mary Mac: Daddy, I checked out a book from the school library today. The LIBARIAN says we have to take extra special care of our books.
John: That's great, Mary Mac. Maybe when we get home I can read the book to you.
Mary Mac: Well, I don't want to hurt you feelings or anything but you can't lick your fingers and then turn the pages with this school book. You can only do that with the books that belong to me. Maybe mommy should read to me.
Joyful Car Ride #2:
(on the way to visiting Nana's church)
Chase: Mom, can we just go to big church with you and daddy?
Chandler: Yeah, 'cause we don't know anyone at this church and we'd feel better if we could stay with you.
Me: That's fine with me.
Mary Mac: You mean, I'm the ONLY one going into a class by myself?!
(Big four year old eye roll.)
That's okay, it just means that out of everybody I'm the BRAVEST and the SMARTEST.
(and the most humble...)
