Girlfriend

Candidness of children

sunny 97 °F

As I held Sophie's hand in mine, I was walking a few feet in front of Nadine and Dominic and out of earshot.

I leaned over and asked her, "Would you be my girlfriend?"

"Daddy, I am too young."

I completely agree with her quality response. I hope she answers like that for another 25 years.

She further added, "When I am older, you will be dead."

"What?!?!?" I assured her that I will probably live for a long time.

So I decided to ask her one more probing question.

"So you'll be sad when I am dead, right?"

She pondered her answer for several seconds and quipped, "I am not sure."

Life is a Trip

Sophie and Dominic say and do the darndest things

overcast 98 °F

Basically, life with kids is just as fun as life on the road with a backpack.

People do odd things in Vietnam, so do my two kids.

People wear unique pairings of clothes in Bolivia, so do my two kids.

People talk in foreign languages, so do my two kids.

Anything that Sophie and Dominic do or say that make us laugh or smile. We'll post it here for you to enjoy as well.

I came, I saw, I laughed, and I hope you do too.

John
