An Actual Conversation

Lexi {shivering}: Mom, I'm freezing! I'm shivering!

Me {turning on heater in car}: You are? Do you know why you shiver?

Lexi {intrigued}: No, why?

Me {teaching voice}: Well, shivers are really little muscle contractions. When each muscle moves, it creates a little heat. So, you shiver, it creates heat, and you get a little warmer. Shivers actually make you warm.

Lexi {contemplative pause}

Lexi {enthusiastically, after having a scientific breakthrough}: Well, I'm gonna get super hot because I have really big muscles!!!!!

About Me

My photo
What started as a way to communicate with far away friends and family has become a place for this horse trainer/HR manager turned stay at home mom of 3 girls to hold on to a bit of her own identity. It's my take on the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the thoughts and feelings, the mistakes and triumphs of this family as we bumble our way to eternity.
