I Hate Being Out of the Loop

By Justine Dorton

Mom and 5 year old ~S at Costco…

Mom: “Alrighty, I think we’re about done here. Anything else you think we might need, kiddo?”

~S: “Well, just a map, I guess.”

Mom: “A map of what? Why do we need a map?”

~S: “Aren’t we leaving soon? Don’t we need a map?”

Mom: “Umm, where are we going?”

~S: “I thought we were leaving for Africa tomorrow. You know, for the safari.”

  2. Doesn't it just break your heart when you have to burst that little bubble?
    That sounds like a great trip. Wish you were getting to go.

  3. This story reminds me of yesterday, and an exchange we had in primary.

    Music Leader- Aren't you all grateful it's fast Sunday?
    My little CTR 7- Oh yes, I love fast Sundays….They are so much better than slow Sundays!

    She had no idea why I was giggling so hard.
