Has anyone gathered yet that I love my kid and think that he's pretty terrific? Let me get all Kathie Lee Gifford for a moment and tell you about yet another cute thing that my child did tonight.
He and I were coming home from running errands and it was getting dark. From the mouth of my child: "I want to sing the stars out, Mommy. They like the song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, so that's what I'll sing to them." I told him that would be fine. So he began to sing and these are the words and inflections he used: "Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I won der wh at you are. Up a bove the world so high, like a diamond in the BEAUTIFUL sky, twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are." And just then, a star peeked out into the dimming sky. Isn't that amazing? The timing was perfect.
I could go off on a tangent and a soapbox about how children see the world as a beautiful place until we as adults dim their view and force them to see the unbeautiful side of the world. But hey, why bother? Y'all already know how I feel about it, don't you? :)
Ok, commercial time for Lost is over. I should let you know that this is the start of a new season of Lost, and I am HOPELESSLY addicted. So if you need/want me, make it after Lost on Wednesday nights, got it? :):) Of course I have TiVo, but Aaron isn't always willing to pause Lost.
Have a good night!
