Through the eyes of a child....

We're in the truck going to Wally's to get the new Bring it On movie for my birthday. I've been a little testy this morning, here's the conversation that ensued....

WonderKid: You're not happy on your birthday Mom?
Me: What WonderKid?
WonderKid: Aren't you happy?
Me: (thinking I miss Mr.Wonder) Yeah, I guess
WonderKid: Tell me what you're happy about...
Me: I'm happy I have you
WonderKid: What else?
Me: I'm happy we have a place to live and food to eat
WonderKid: And what else?
Me: I'm happy we get to go to the pool everyday, happy we have friends...
WonderKid: Good, know why I'm happy?
Me: Why?
WonderKid: Because I have you!
Me: Aww, thanks WonderKid!

It might sound silly, but having her have me list what I was happy about put me in a better mood. It amazes me how sometimes kids just know what we need. I love this girl:
