Tickets, Please

Driving Matthew home from school one day, I happily started singing along when the radio played a "classic". I just love Gold 90.5! But realising that I'm now listening to that channel makes me feel very old indeed.

"One way ticket, one way ticket..."

I noticed that Matthew was listening intently.

"Do you know what they're saying, Matt?"

He listened a bit more and then remarked, "But there's no such thing as a one day ticket to the moon, right?"

"Yup, that's right!"

Haha! I couldn't stop grinning. And I didn't have the heart to correct him either. Besides, that's exactly what I thought it was until Sean corrected me a few years ago.

Words of "Wisdom"

At bedtime prayers, we gather the children together and we all take turns saying parts of the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.

The past few nights, Sophie would suddenly interrupt any one of us, little hand raised, saying, "Wait a minute, I buy 4D, two dollars money!"

Then last night, in the lift, a man got in wearing a business shirt and trousers, and she pointed to him and said, "Like Daddy's dress."

I'm glad she hasn't forgotten her Daddy although he's been gone for days. Can't wait for him to come home tonight.
