New Mothers, hold your babies tight.  One day, before you know it, they will be four going on snarky and jaded.

Let's set up this scene, shall we?

Driving away from the terminal after dropping Aaron off to leave for Scotland.
Me: I miss him already!
Claudia: Why?
Me: I don't know, I just do.
Claudia: Uh, we're still in the airport Mommy.  There are planes ALL AROUND YOU.
Me: True, but . . .
Claudia:  I think Daddy's going to get trapped, like, in a jail. 

Dear Daughter,
Your mother is a highly impressionable and superstitious woman.  Please keep your insights to yourself from now on. And no, you can't have ice cream because you finished all your french fries.  It doesn't matter how loud you yell "BUT POTATOES ARE HEALTHY!"  That only works on Grandma.

Potatoes are a good source of Vitamin B6. They are also high in potassium, beating out all other potassium rich foods. They are also a good source of iron and copper. A potato a day is good for your heart, promoting normal blood pressure levels.
Wanna hear about Schrodinger's Cat now?

Like I said, it only works on Grandma. You're like a bad Fox News reporter.

Oh my BFF is Bill O'Reilly.
