Facebook asks us everyday, "What's on your mind?" Try randomly asking your kids that sometime. It is pretty interesting to hear their answers! I started asking them when we are driving and love getting a glimpse into their thoughts. Personally, I was very pleased to learn that Terrific T DOES want to get married now (originally he was going to adopt kids and then adopt a wife to take care of them because he didn't want to kiss anyone). He decided he doesn't want to have Spanish kids and wants them to look like him (one of his good friends was adopted from Guatemala ... I assume that is where that train of thought originated?). He isn't sure who is wife will be but said he thinks she will be skinny, like me. His words, not mine. (He is totally my favorite!) Oh he also said that he is going to be a jet pilot...or maybe a preacher.
Try it - talk to your kids. They are pretty darn awesome.
