It's twenty valuable minutes out of our day where my daughter has the most non-linear, off on a tangent, stream of consciousness conversations every imaginable. Lord knows what goes on in her head but I like our little conversations.
My AHA moment occurred to me as we passed some middle schoolers and I realized that before I know it the next few years will pass me by and she will be going to school by herself. And as history shows, she will turn into one of those stereotypical, moody and non-communicative tweener/teenage girls
So now I gladly enjoy the walk to and from school every day.
Living in the Moment.
