My Musings on Life, "Ask Amanda" kid advice.
|Mandy Mayhem has lots of advice. Just ask Amanda.|
Amanda always takes her seat-belt off while I'm stopped on the street waiting to pick up the after-school kids. One school is no big deal, the other is a busy city street. Policemen and Crossing Guards direct cars.
Amanda: "What? That policeman saw me and I didn't get arrested."
Mommy: "What if we have an accident?"
Amanda: "We're stopped."
Mommy: "Well if a car doesn't see us stopped on the street and runs into the back of us you'll go flying thru the window. You could get whiplash or even die!" "What would I do with your Christmas presents if you died?"
Amanda: "Put them on my carving stone at the cemetery."
You know how people live on golf courses? We live like that on a cemetery garden. Yesterday and in the Spring, Hispanics gather to remember a slain country singer who escaped to America to flee would-be murderers. I don't know the particulars, but they found him and killed him in a small town. His gravestone is over 6' tall and nestled behind the trees in our backyard. They bring him gifts, play music, and even have picnics. I can only assume that is how she formed this hypothesis.
