A Short Ride Home

As we were driving home from dance class tonight, Karson was chattering to me from the back seat. The dance studio is about 10 minutes from our house, but I'm telling you, she can fill 10 minutes with A LOT of information!

Topic #1 - Pets
"Mom, do you know why I want a pet so much? Because sometimes I don't really want to talk to Campbell or to you or to Daddy. I just want to look over at that fish (we've told her she can have a fish) and say, "Hello, how are you?" and all he'll do is listen. He won't talk back."

Topic #2 - School
"Ask me about Kayla (her best friend in her class). She is NOT GOOD. She was sick. No, she wasn't at school, so I had to play with Paige. You know what Mom? Paige is a good friend. She let me choose everything we did today."

Topic #3 - Nana
"I'm ready for Nana and Doo Daddy to come home (they've been in Mississippi). I know they've missed me so much."

Topic #4 - Easter
"You know what I'm going to ask the Easter bunny for? A clubhouse. (I informed her that we only get big gifts at Christmas or birthdays. Easter is just a few little gifts in our Easter basket). Okay, I'll ask for a Wii. (I then informed her that even though a Wii is not a "big" thing size-wise, it is still a very expensive gift.) You know what Mom, the Easter bunny isn't real. It's just someone dressed up in a bunny outfit."

Do you think we're in that EGOcentric stage or what? My high school AP Psychology class is all coming back to me! I'm thinking we might need to talk about putting others first!

That is the best argument for a fish I've ever heard. I totally agree.....sometimes you just don't feel like talking to the humans in your house! Pat will be very impressed that you took AP Psychology in high school. He has lots of textbooks if you need a refresher course. :-)
