Cars and you didn't know.

I walked by Brooklyns room this morning while she was getting ready for school and she had the biggest smile on her face. She said, "Mom! Do you know why I am smiling?" And I said, "No, why are you smiling?" She said, "Because I had a dream about Justin and that makes me smile!" (He is a boy from her school that she likes one day and then doesn't the next depending on if they played together or not) I told her that we were running late, but that I would love to hear about her dream in the car on the way to school.

When we finished getting ready and got in the car I asked her to tell me all about her great dream. She tried to tell me, but then she said, "I can't really remember in the car like I can in the house. Cars steal dreams. They really do Mom."

Oh man! I had to try so hard not to laugh:) I love being the Mom of a five year old girl.
The most important thing she’d learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
