Conversation at the Rickard dinner table last night:
Mom & Dad: "Allison, what would you like for Christmas?"
Allison: "A Christmas Tree"
Mom: "Oh, that's sweet. We're going to do that this weekend."
Mom & Dad: "But what presents would you like there to be for you under the tree?"
Allison: "I want to go camping with my dad under the twee...outside...and put marshmallows on sticks by a fire....and dad, we could sleep on pillows and mats (nap mats)...."
Huh? Where is she coming up with this?
Mom: "Well, what about mommy? Where is mommy going to sleep?"
Allison: "In your bed...you stay here, mom."
Whew! What a relief! I'm not a camping kind of girl....unless it involves cabins with electricity!
