every child has the gift of providing innocent insight as he discovers the world around him. i think it's a gift from God - so that parents don't go clinically insane with the stresses of raising a kid. after four years of being amazed -and at times perplexed- by my son Nile's journey through childhood, it's time to write it all down. although i tell myself it would be impossible to forget, i know some day i will cherish being able to read this. and i will still be shaking my head.

don't get too attached
Nile is very excited to take care of his first fish. But when you ask what their names are he says "they don't have names, they're just fish!" and rolls his eyes. So they will be known as "orange fish with the white stripe" and "black fish that sticks to the wall".
