Conversations from the Back Seat

Some of my best memories of my girls happen while we drive all over Southern New England. This weekend the conversation went something like this:

Hilde: "Mom the car in front of us is a Passat, just like your old one. Does it make you miss your car?"

Me: "Yes, it does. *sigh* I love that car."

Maeve: "Sarah (our babysitter) was talking about what she would do if she won the $170 Power Ball Jackpot. She said she would make sure all her friends had a safe place to live, then she would buy herself a car and then the car you've always wanted and then buy us a pony."

Me: "That's a very wise and thoughtful plan that Sarah has if she wins." I was thinking of the safe place to live part.

Hilde quips: "Yes, it is very wise of Sarah to buy us a pony."

Also heard this....

Maeve and Hilde singing two of their favorite songs, back to back. Carrie Underwood's Temporary Home and Jesus Take the Wheel.

*sniff* *sniff*

I needed a Kleenex.

  1. Hilde is right. A pony would be the best thing of all :)
