We moved on to dinner and half way through our very casual dinner conversation our daughter looks straight at me and says, "so do you have a secret you've never told anybody?" I smile and say, "yes." I look at her and pause. She never takes her eyes off of me as her smile grows across her face she says, "okay, I'll go first if you don't believe me that I have a secret I've never told you!"
Her secrets are safe with me.
P.S. The first thing big mister said to me when he woke, "mom, you should've come to The Crazy Crab, they had hush puppies!" (picture him leaping in his seat on the couch as he says hush puppies) (my husband said big mister ate about 10; he has a new favorite food)
