Proud Mom Moment

When your 13 y/o daughter turns on a DVR of "The Daily Show" all by herself, then remarks on a story about Netanyahu's visit to the Congressional Chamber: "Netanyahu and the Chamber of Secrets!"



I don't get these very often, so indulge me a little bit, please.

8. they are the best. whether just exploring thought, in tune or not with our own, to hear the children

 

interested in the world around them is always a warm glow moment.

yea your daughter. and yea you, that you open that world up for your daughter.

I want to have great conversations with her when she is an adult.

14. i have always had profound and interesting conversation with the oldest. he excels at conversation.

 

now he is in university and interested in so many things, but is getting his degree in philosophy, so wow.... some of the conversations.

my youngest is very informed on world events and his conversations are more.... have you heard? and that is about it, lol. but it is good to hear, that he has heard.

kids were out of district with school, so i dropped off and picked up. a good 8 miles so it gave us continual talking time. we did a lot of conversing in the car, back and forth to school.

dinner was a must.... with conversation. and over the years, i ate slower and slower.... no one leaving the table until i was done. lol. we could sit there a good hour or more, talking.

talking lets us be connected. it is a fav of mine.

15. We make sure we eat dinner together, too.

And with the TV off! Makes such a difference.
