Pretend Friends

Schatz (holding Maura's hand): Today, let's pretend that we are best friends.

Maura: Best friends on a road trip.

Me: Why do you have to pretend? Can't you just be each other's best friend?

Schatz (exasperated): MOM! Because we are just playing pretend!

Children at Funerals

Kids have a way of making you smile even during the sad times. We attended a Memorial for a friend of mine who passed away last week after a long, difficult battle with Leukemia.

Speaker (while speaking about Kimberly's life as a military wife) : Kimberly always met life's challenges with poise and grace.

Maura (in a LOUD whisper): Mom? Who's Grace?

Musical Beds

Schatz: Did you come get me in the middle of the night?

Mom: No, you woke up and crawled into Mommy's bed.

Schatz: No, I didn't. Daddy must have gotten me.

Mom: I don't think he did.

Schatz: Well, I did not wake up and come get in your bed.

Mom: Maybe you were sleep walking.

Schatz: Yes, that's it. YOU were sleep walking and came to get me in your bed.

Everyone's a Critic

While flipping through her Daddy's iPod...

Schatz (disgusted): Daddy, I can't find P!nk, but you sure have a lot of cowboys.
