I know I don't really qualify as a blogger anymore, but today I feel I must jot this down because I know from experience that things I think I will never forget are starting to fade. I was teasing Isaac about baby Forrest, the conversation that followed has me certain that my 8 year old is one of the wisest beings I know.
Mom: (pointing to Forrest) is this yours? I told you not to leave your stuff laying around
Isaac: Mom, he is your baby!
Mom: Baby, huh? Well what do you do with a baby?
Isaac: Well, you feed him, love him and take care of him and when it is time you nudge him out of the nest.
Mom: How do you know when it's time for this nudging?
Isaac: When he has a job!
