Seriously?

Driving to school yesterday, with all three of us in the car:

Jarrah: Mommy, do you know what to call trees that lose their leaves every winter?

Sam: Um...do you?

Jarrah: Deciduous trees.

Sam: (whispering to David) Did you hear that?

David: It's true.

Sam: I mean, have you heard her SAY that before?

David: Oh! No.

Sam: Geez Louise. The other day I heard them talking about lepidopterists in her class during pick-up.

David: What's a lepidopterist?

Jarrah: (calling from the back seat) It's a scientist who discovers butterflies.

Sam: Maybe kindergarten is not the next step. Maybe we start touring colleges.

You are so screwed. Although, maybe she can help with your taxes...

Did you ever see that movie Little Man Tate? I hope so, because that's what I thought of. :-)

Smooch to Jarrah!
