Not so disappointed ... post editorial

Yesterday afternoon, as Celia and I sat on upturned buckets pulling weeds in our garden, I offered to take her to see the last Harry Potter before we pick up Christian from scout camp this weekend.  It just seemed easier not to rock that boat while he was home.

The silence lasted for a moment and then she sat up straight.

"Mom, I think I just want to wait until November when Christian can see it.  It's not as exciting to watch it alone."

That's the stuff that makes life with these kids unforgettable.
