So instead of musings about a new decade or a list of resolutions, I give you a picture that our little artist drew today (labeled by me for your convenience):
Well, once you read the conversation that occured while Rowan was creating this picture, I think you'll understand why it's now one of my favorites.
Rowan: "Mama, I can use markers and glue sticks without any help now."
Me: "I know. You're getting so big. You can do a lot of things all by yourself.
Rowan: "And I know a lot of stuff, too."
Rowan: "Like about science and space."
Me: "Mmm Hmm"
Rowan: "Like I know that when an asteroid falls to Earth, it becomes a meat-eater."
Me: "A meat-eater?"
Rowan: "Yeah, it's an asteroid up in space, and then it falls down to Earth and becomes a meat-eater."
Me: [thinking...then cracking up!] "Oh my God, Rowan! Do you mean a meteor?!"
Rowan: [thinking...then smiling sheepishly] "Oh yeah. That's right. A meteor!"
Wishing you lots of laughs in 2010!
