I feel I need to lighten things up... well maybe not, but I feel a giggle is in order after all the tears.
Here's another "outside the box" conversation from last week that's so typical around our house...
Setting - Daddy goes to wake Ryland up for school.
Daddy: Hey Ry. How are you liking the Jackie Chan book? (sitting on the edge of her bed)
Ry: I like it. (as she snuggles deeper under her covers trying to avoid morning)
Daddy: He's a fun guy, eh?
Ry: He's not a mushroom.
She hadn't even opened her eyes or lifted her head off the pillow yet.
