From The Backseat

I was driving the kids to soccer the other day. It's already dark here at 6 pm but the field is lit. This is the conversation I heard coming from the backseat:


7 year old big brother: I can see a planet in the sky.

5 year old little brother: Where?! I want to see it too.

Big bro: Oh, too late. It already moved.

Little bro: I can see the moon.

Big bro: Where? I don't see it.

Little bro: Oh, too late. It already moved.


We had a very busy solar system that night.

lol! That really brought back some back-seat memories of when my three were little (and of many conversations with my own brothers and sisters so many, many moons ago)! Thanks for the laugh!

I can see Mars! Oh, no, too late! It already moved! Ha, ha!

Of course they moved. Don't they always move in the blink of an eye or when a seven year old says they move?

That's thinking pretty fast on his feet for the little one. :)

Hugs,
