Cosette called me into the living room tonight after dinner and said she had something to 'read' to me that she had written. This is what she said:
My mommy is the best cook
She cooks the most yummiest food
She takes good care of her family as good as she knows how
She tries to keep us healthy so we won't die
But we'll all die someday
Then, she looked up at me with complete love in her eyes, and I had to swallow my laughter as to not hurt her feelings. I could tell that she wanted me to be impressed and greatly moved by it. I gave her a big hug and thanked her, but in my head I was thinking "Is it a poem? Or a prayer? And how can a poem/prayer that starts out about something as nice as food end with something as sad as death??" Good grief, I think my daughter has deeper thinking than I do!
