Too slow? Must be because I’m old and broken!

July 17, 2010

It’s amazing the things you learn while traveling in the car with your family.

Yesterday, we took a day trip to pick Evan up from Basketball camp.  We were hardly out of town and the conversation with the girls got around to the fact that Mom & Dad were also kids once.  Olivia was intrigued by this idea.

“So Uncle Jon was three once?” she asked.

“And he lived at Ginna & Beanah’s then?”

“Yes” I replied.  We both lived there when we were little.

“But now Mommy’s OLD!” D’Arcy stated.

“No!” Olivia cried indignantly, coming to my defense.  “Mommy’s not old!  She’s not breaking!”

To top it off, we were hardly fifteen more minutes into the drive when she announced, “Mama, you should let Daddy drive.”

“Why?” I asked.  (I should have known better!)

“Because you’re too slow!!”

Sigh.
