The kids set the table for dinner, and as we sat down, Daniel said, "Oh, I forgot napkins!" Rebecca said, "We don't need napkins!" I said, "Yes, a proper table should always be set with napkins." Rebecca asked why. I explained, "Because we're civilized." She said with contempt, "We are NOT CIVILIZED!!"
Daniel's 5th grade music program was tonight. One of the songs they sang was "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. They introduced the song, and then a few kids came out in '80s clothes with guitars and one even had a big hair band wig on. I looked over at Rebecca, and she looked absolutely horrified. I asked, "What's wrong?" She said, "THAT is NOT what it looks like when you're living on a prairie."
