Story Hour...

You know you're getting old when
the little girl you used to take to story hour
is now reading the books at story hour.

...or when your Sunday afternoon is spent teaching her to drive
around the a real car.
Actually, it was fun.
We had a lot of laughs and only once did I yell "STOP...BRAKES"!!!:-)
Read on for a list of things that children know...
and most adults have forgotten

- Speak up.
- Hang on tight.
- Sometimes it's smart to be scared.
- Ask why until you understand.
- You can be anything you want to be.
- Shortcuts aren't always shorter.
- Sometimes two is a crowd.
- Hitting the kid with the ball might get you the ball but it won't get you anyone to throw it to.
- Go barefoot.
- Who cares what happened last week.
- Trust people.
- Insist on doing it yourself.
- More is not always better.
- Look both ways.
- If you wait until you're really sure, you'll never take off the training wheels.

- Why buy roses when daisies are free?
- Just do your best.

- If your dog doesn't like someone, you probably shouldn't either.
- Don't pop someone else's bubble.

  7. This time of your life seems to fly by. My daughter is now 35 and my Dad taught her to drive. They lived on the lake and he just took her around the cove several times a day. He had better nerves than me. He is now in Heaven but my daughter and I cherish those memories.

  8. What a wonderful list! Why is it so hard for us "big people" to remember all of these! Your daughter looks beautiful in her ballet clothes, like a real ballerina!

  9. totally great comparison :D

  10. Hello Suzanne. She is lovely! Such a sweet post and beautiful words.

  11. She's so lovely, Suzanne! But the driving...yikes!
