Out of the mouths of babes…

October 3, 2005

Sometimes wisdom really comes out of the mouths of babes. Going down the highway we were passed by a car with, shall we say, a little more than I wished my family to see hanging out of the window. My 8 year old son, Mark, asked what they were doing, so my wife and I answered ‘mooning.’ Mark then asked what the people meant by mooning us. My wife and I were considering what to say when our three year old girl, Sara, chimed in with her perspective: “Daddy, I know what they meant.” Perplexed, I asked her what she meant.

Smugly, she said, “They were saying they wanted a spanking.”

I let the issue rest with that.
