When kids are little they say such funny, cute things. As they get older the things they say aren't quite as funny as they start to be eclipsed by the "smarty-pant" comments and the sarcasm. Maybe that's just in my house.... Anyway, it seems noteworthy when your 7th grader says something, maybe not so funny, but surprising for sure. We were riding in the car the other day, CM in the front seat. (Sidebar: It is still so weird to have her sitting in the front with me.) All of a sudden she asks, "Mom, are we at risk for a septic disaster?" Little girl in front seat say what?? What a surprising question! I'm happy to say I was able to alleviate her fears by informing her that we are on the city's system and they handle all the emergencies and disasters (I hope!). Evidently on the gospel music channel (home of the approved 7th Heaven TV show that she likes) there has been a commercial showing a septic disaster. Good to know. I guess we will know what to do if it ever happens to us. (Sidebar: Did you know that there are more septic disasters now because of anti-bacterial soap? It kills all the bacteria that used to help contain septic systems. So, if you have your own septic system stop using anti-bacterial soap!).
