Laughing cow.

On the way to school Friday:

Isaiah:  Hey Mom?

Me:  Yup.

Isaiah: Knock! Knock!

Me: Huh?

Isaiah: Mom!

Me: Oh! Yeah, okay. . .my bad.

Isaiah:  Okay Mom. You ready?

Me:  I am now. Let's do it.

Isaiah:  Okay Mom. Knock Knock!

Me: Uhhh, who's there?

Isaiah:  Interrupting cow.

Me:  Interrupting co---

Isaiah:  MOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Me: *hysterical laughter*

I have no idea why but this seriously made me laugh out loud from Ponce de Leon Avenue all the way to the carpool lane last Friday. I guess because it so very captures the spirit of the interactions I have with my kids on the way to school or at the bus stop.

This morning I was just reflecting on that and what a blessing it is to have children that can engage you with nonsensical jokes, excessive chatter about Minecraft and Scribblenauts, and even whiny pleas about exactly who is responsible for what never made it into a backpack. It all seems mundane, but I know that these moments are all little miracles.

They are.

And this? This, my friends, is just a piece of my so-called life outside of Grady. The one filled with love, laughter, and mischief of one kind or another.

Happy Tuesday. And may you have the great fortune of being interrupted by very special cows all day long.


  1. you are so wise to notice these moments. i love how easy those boys' hearts are. you do that.

  2. My son is 14, and last year was rough. I tell him know that he was an over-achiever on the teenager jerkiness as a 13-year old. I have discovered finding some reason for us to share a laugh is the key to our connecting. It started with me finding something to make him laugh, but now I find that he is equally sharing the humor finding on the mornings I drive.
