|A day or two ago, I overheard Lincoln saying,
“Daddy, did you know that I would rather die to save Sidney’s life, and Sidney would rather die to save my life?” Then he giggles. “We’d each rather die to save each other’s life.”
Just as my heart begins to melt at the sweetness of this child of mine, I hear Rachel, another child of mine, yelling, “NO, Prairie, NO, Prairie!” And Prairie, yet ANOTHER child of mine, answers with a squeal that pierces right through my skull, making me grind my teeth. They sound like they are killing each other.
Oh well, I thought Lincoln’s comment was particularly appropriate to the season.
