All Night Long

Today I took The Boss with me to the town hall to deposit some checks related to a local newsletter I publish. As I recorded and tabulated, she conversed at length with everyone who walked by. One elderly gentleman took a seat next to her.

"I watched Curious George all night long," she informed him.

I shifted my attention from the receipt sheet to my daughter with eyebrow arched. "No, you didn't," I said. "Unless you were watching it in your dreams."

The Boss solemnly lifted her chin in my direction. She was tilted in thought. Then she spoke up: "Am I a dreamer, mommy?"

The man chuckled.

"I hope so," I said.

I think you can have some of the best conversations with children. Kids are so whimsical!

I'm kind of a lurker and just wanted to say that that is one of the most adorable things I've heard.

Always something cute from the mouths of babes.
