6am.  A tap on my shoulder…

Jonah: Mommy…
Me: Yes…?
J: I’m up.
Me: I see.
J: Mommy?
Me: Yes…?
J: I had a very bad dream.
Me: I’m so sorry to hear that.
J: Mommy?
Me: Yes…?
J: Please don’t be mad at me… but in my dream… I punched (my cousin).
Me: Wow, that does sound like a bad dream.
J: Are you mad at me?
Me: No, honey. It was just a dream.
J:… Because you know I’d never punch my cousin, right?
Me: I know you’d never punch anyone.
A few days later… 6am again… (I mean, seriously). Michelle Obama in a PSA on PBS.
Me: Do you know who that is?
J: No, who?
Me: That’s The First Lady of the United States. That’s President Obama’s wife. They call her “The First Lady.”
J: She was the first lady… EVER?!!!
Me: Not exactly…
I love May.
