This morning Dinah went with me to drop off Garrison at day care.

I was helping Garrison get settled there when Meredith, one of his day care buddies about his age, came up to Dinah (who was still in her car seat) and said in all earnestness, “I love your shoes. Where did you get them?”Dinah looked at me. I looked at Garrison and said, “I don’t know. Garrison, do you know where Dinah got these shoes?”Garrison shook his head sadly as though I had asked him the dumbest of all possible questions and said, “From a drawer in her room.”Yet another important life lesson learned at day care: never ask two guys where a girl got her shoes.
