Yesterday on the way home from my 11th trip to the grocery store, Hannah began telling me a story about why sometimes she likes to have her jeans tucked into her boots and other times she likes her boots under her jeans. A deep conversation, yes. She was giving me all of the nitty gritty details as to what makes it a "tucked in day" or a "covered up day". Seven or so minutes into the story I decided to ask her if other types of pants also had to go through the same process as jeans when she makes the decision as to tucking them into the boots or leaving them out. I was just trying to show her I was listening and sincerely interested. I've had to remind myself lately to savor these silly little conversations and appreciate them because before long I'm afraid she may hit a stage where she keeps it all inside. I had barely had the chance to finish asking my question when she stated, "Mommy, If you could please hold all questions for the end, that would be really good."
