The things they pick up along the way.
Saturday, December 7, 2013

One day it was just Ryan and I in my van on the way to school.

"Hey mom, do you think you can know a lot about a person from the kind of car they drive?"

"I don't know bud. What do you think?"

"I think you can. Like, your car says that you're a mom. And Dad's car says that he cares more about you than he does himself." 

I just had to smile. I marvel at little things that kids pick up on. I love the inferences they draw without ever being taught or told. And I love that everyday my kids see their  Dad communicating love to us all in ways both big ways and small. 

Here's hoping that one day Ryan is willing to drive a 15 year old, paint-peeling sedan, while his wife has the mini-van of her dreams.
