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.
