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.

the little sweetheart purposely poked holes in his brand new short-sleeved gray polo shirt today. cause he doesn't like it and he never wants to have to wear it again. even to church. i've said a few extra prayers today - and i'm still furious.
O.K. I have had to google answers to Nile's questions 3 times today. He will not accept my own answers. 1. What is "humid"? Why does it feel so icky. 2. Why aren't worms insects. 3. Why do boys have testicles if they don't make pee.
