Your Love is Like the Morning Sun

On our way home from the grocery this evening, Brendan shouts, "Look, Mommy! The sun is cracking the sky."

Sure enough, the heavy grey clouds had broken apart and the pale yellow sun was brightly and blindingly shining through. We talked about the sun for a minute and then Brendan asked if the sun was breaking up the clouds because it wasn't ready for bed yet. He then asked me if the sun had a mommy who made him go to bed.

I laughed and explained that the sun doesn't really go to bed and then explained how the Earth rotates and revolves around the sun, etc. So then, Brendan asked me if the Earth was the sun's mommy. He was laughing and knew he was joking, but I just thought it was kind of sweet somehow.

My daughter used to refer to sunrise as "halfway day". She was only two or three at the time; I have no idea where it came from.

Renn, that is too cute. Kids have such an amazing way for really seeing things as they are and expressing it. By the way, I loved reading about your trip to Maine with your daughter. Your love for your family really shows itself in the way you talk about them.
