Conversations from the backseat

22/Dec/2006

Today, as we were driving home from playing at the park with Paige, I decided to go through town so LB could go on a bridge over water and see the big buildings. We drove by Mr. Flinger’s Alumni and I pointed out that is where Daddy went to school. LB was quiet, and I repeated, “See? That is Daddy’s college. Daddy went to school there.”

We drove a bit more and she could see it better so I told her again, “That’s where daddy went to school.” And again after we rounded a corner and could see a different view.

About ten minutes later as we’re passing a mall and the surrounding stores, LB gasps and says,

“Oh! I see! Daddy’s school is Target!”

*sigh* Now I just need to inform her that when I tell her she will go to college after high school, I don’t mean be a cashier at Target.

We’re traveling south tomorrow so watch for us on Flickr.  Merry Christmas and all inclusive holiday love from our family to yours.

  9. For the record, she actually said that ALMOST word for word. I added the “is” because she really said, “Oh! I see! Daddy’s school target!” But yaknow, the “is” is implied. wink
