the shock and awe of parenting

There are times when something comes out of your kid’s mouth that’s so utterly surprising you’re stunned into silence.  It doesn’t happen to me often – sometimes it would probably help matters more if I’d keep my trap shut – but once in a while even I’m knocked off my feet by these little people.  

I wrote about telling the kids about how we became parents in Forever Family: stories matter, but I didn’t go into detail about what prompted that talk.  It came from one of those shock and awe moments, an instant where time stood still while I tried to process what on earth T-man had just said out loud.

Man, the things kids say…join us for Forever Family tomorrow.  Maybe you even have your own shock and awe moment to share.
