. . . feeling really tired.
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . recalling this conversation with two of my kids (Daniel, age 5; Anna, age 3) yesterday:
K: Hey, Daniel. Christmas is a time for doing nice things for other people, but it's also a time when we get a few fun presents. What kinds of things would you like for Christmas?
D: My very own iPad!
K: Um, Santa doesn't give iPads to anyone under 18 years old.
D: [a little put out] Oh. Then I'd like some good spiders, that don't bite people.
K: Uh, OK. Anna, what would you like for Christmas?
A: String. So I can eat it.
K: You mean string cheese?
A: No, string.
K: ??? [makes a mental note to just plan kid gift lists with Phillip tonight]
