I felt a little like I was the child and Ethan was the parent during a conversation we had the other day.
We were talking about the goings on at school, and I was mildly lamenting the fact that I am rarely at school to volunteer in their classrooms, get to know their teachers, or just have lunch with them. Ethan said, "Well, would you rather be in our classrooms or have a baby?"
I replied that I really wish I could do both (I know, I struggle with accepting reality sometimes). Ethan looked right at me and repeated, "Would you rather be in our classrooms or have a baby?"
Okay, I get the point. Thanks, sweet boy.
Having the outlook of a child can be really good for keeping life in perspective.
