Facebook reminded me of this post from 2 years ago… her thoughts on the three wise men still make me laugh!
It’s been an odd few days. I’ve had some funny and sad conversations with Daughter Dear (DD). She is sharp, witty & observant, and I forget underneath all that, she’s a 9-year-old tween trying to make sense of her world as its boundaries expand. Here are a few snippets from yesterday…
Impromptu geography quiz on the walk to school…she got Chile, Morocco, the Dominican Republic….and then:
Me: Where is Papua New Guinea?
DD: You can’t start MAKING UP countries now!
Time to stop using the globe as an indoor football, methinks.
Later last night, apropos of nothing:
DD: You know the three wise men?
Me: Not personally, no. I’m not THAT old. But I know of their work.
DD: Yeah, if they were so wise (air quotes here), why didn’t they bring useful stuff, like a cot, and a midwife, and maybe some takeaway?
Me: Yes, why not indeed?…
