If I could make the rules

Once in a while, you have a moment when the kids do something so wonderful and so unexpected, you actually need to sit down and take it in. I just had one of those moments. Ms. Bean brought home a huge stack of work that she did during the 1st quarter (2nd Grade). I was half looking at the paperwork, while doing 50 other things and holding 6 conversations, when a slip of paper caught my eye. The handwriting was definitely my daughters, the sentiment beautiful:

"If I could make the rules, I would open a grocery store just for the poor and the price would be very low or no price at all. I would get rid of cigarettes so nobody would hurt their throat."

Little Bee's Dream

Scene - while laying in bed figuring out today's logistics, Little Bee arrives at the door, sleep still in her eyes:

Little Bee: "Mommy. I had a strange dream."
Me: "Really? What was it about"
Little Bee: "Alex (my mothers dog) went to a school that wasn't very hard, and all they did all day was have fire drills".

I LOVE the mind of a Kindergartner!
