(sigh)....

Last night at dinner, we were having a nice family discussion about college.

KAYLA: Mom, you went to college, right?

ME: Yep. I finished college before Daddy and I got married.

(this is a little tidbit that I subtly insert into conversations with my daughters whenever appropriate. College first. Marriage later. Much later. Kids even later. Much, much, much later.)

KAYLA: So you went to college to be a mom, right?

I died a little inside last night.

Hmm, I'm not sure if I understand why you "died a little." If those years of college caused you to grow, learn and taught you HOW to learn... then YES... it prepared you for the GREATEST & most demanding job description you'll ever fill.

Kayla sees what's lasting & real! :)
