Walked into my 3 year old daughters room this morning to waker her up. I took a minute to gaze at her so restful and relaxed in slumber. She is so cute and quite when she is sleeping. But wait… What is that? It’s a Nerf air powered gun laying on the pillow next to her head. I woke her up and asked her what it was. She looks at me like I am dumb. “It’s my Nerd (pronunciation) gun.” Then I ask the next logical question as to why she is sleeping with it because I am sure I didn’t tuck her in with it. She responds with a straight face, not a hint of humor in her answer, dead serious “You never know when you’ll need it.” Being the good mother that I am I respond “It’s no good if it’s not loaded.” I tell you I am really aiming for that mother of the year award!
