Ego Boost

Some mother-daughter moments just beg to be recorded for posterity...

Ry: Mommy, why do we have an unstable economy?
Me: Oh lord, Ry... couldn't you ask an easier question?
Ry: But I want to know.
Me: So do I. But it's not something I can really explain.
Ry: Yes you can. I'll understand.
Me: It's not you I'm worried about. I don't understand economics. Honestly, it's one of those subjects that makes me feel really stupid.
Ry: But you're not stupid! You're one of the smartest people I know!
Me: Awwwww, thanks, Sweetheart.
Ry: Of course, I don't know very many people. And a lot of the people I know are 9-years-old. And most of them are pretty dorky...
Me: Ry?
Ry: Yes?
Me: You can stop anytime.

anyway, yeah. kids think we are dumber than dirt. it does beg the question of where they came from. but why bother with the facts. genetics are nowhere near as important as the economy...

Diane, I am sure you were just that way when you were Ryan's age.;)))
You should start writing down these exchanges in a book, they might be very precious and amusing memories to you and Ryan in some years.:)
