Connor's a Smart and Funny Kid!
Last night, we took the kids to cut and load some wood in the truck, which is not our 'family car' of choice. Three kids sit in the back row and one has to sit in the middle front seat, that happened to be Connor for this trip. He was talking his usual background noise chatter and I heard him half talk and half sing something about how we were heading north. I thought about our direction for a minute and figured out that he was right. So I took this opportunity to be an encouraging mother and said, "Wow, Connor! That's right we are heading north. How did you know that?" He just shrugged his shoulders and giggled at me....and now that I think of it Adam had a smirk on his face, too. Then he started with his talking-song again, but this time we were heading northwest in his song. In my head I'm thinking, "What? How would he know that?" Suddenly it dawned on me that our direction shows up in the corner of the truck's rear view mirror right above his head. I started laughing and tickled him saying, "You little stinker, you can see it right there!" He just laughed and laughed because he had pulled one over on me. We all couldn't stop laughing....Jeffrey included, even though he had no idea what happened. I love and cherish these moments of pure joy!!
