Unrelated picture of wild greenery and blooming basil I brought in yesterday before company arrived.
Just one of those hilariously cute moments that don’t happen quite as much as your kids get older and so must be treasured:
Morgan was working on a book report last night. First high school paper. She asked me to come to the computer and read it, check over it for her. I sat down and was immediately sucked in to fixing the extra spaces between her words. There were two spaces between each word. And on and on. It finally hit me that this was not an accident and that–
A few days ago she had complained about having to double space a paper. Earlier in the evening, she’d walked by from the computer reiterating her frustration with the hassle of double spacing everything.
I got up from the computer, found her, and said, “What do you think double spacing is, Morgan?”
Morgan: “Two spaces between every word.”
I wish kids didn’t have to grow up. They are so darn funny.
