Our next-door neighbors keep their two granddaughters one day a week every week. Their oldest grand is Millie’s age (seriously, they are two days apart), and there is a brand new baby.

The 5-year-old was playing with my kids today and for a while they were inside our house. That’s when I overheard this conversation between her and Millie:

Neighbor Girl: I wish I could live with you guys.
Millie: Why?
Neighbor Girl: Because you guys are nice.
Millie: Yeah, well, we do school a lot.

I’m not exactly sure why, but this cracked me up. Especially coming from the one who does the least school of all of us around here…

    That was funny. I’m sure my kids think they do school “a lot” too – but they don’t know how good they have it. I pointed it out the other day when we saw kids getting on a school bus at 6:30 AM while we were on our way to play tennis and the kids got to play at the park (we are early risers anyway – but I don’t think the kids would relish heading off to school at that time).
