From the Mouths of Babes

Sonic Drive-Thru is the backdrop for today's entry. Brooks and I took Oliver there after his school Christmas program to celebrate his performance and to enjoy some together time. He likes the burgers and as he's hungrily delving into his, I think about the highs and lows of my mood swings that morning. Suddenly I ask aloud, "Why is it so hard to be me?"

Without looking up Oliver says, "'Cause you're so angry."

Thanks, but it was a rhetorical question.

Oh man. It stinks when kids are so bold and so right. And why do I relate so much to this post? Yes, I find myself angry and, often, for no real reason. I really need to be nicer!

My nephew brought me a nativity from Mexico that he said was typical of the one's he saw in the houses there. He said that in addition to the usual nativity figures, there are usually toys from happy meals and all sorts of other action figure toys. Jesus said lover everyone . . .

The lyrics really are "Jesus said love everyone." What a typo.
