Charis's Educational Goals

Tonight around the dinner table we had an interesting conversation. I'm not sure what sparked it, but Tobin informed us that we (Ted and I) could take care of him until he turned 21. I told him it was a deal. Then Charis said she wanted to go to college and take classes to learn how to be a mommy. I laughed and said that unfortunately, none of my classes truly prepared me to be a mommy (that's definitely an on-the-job-training sort of a career!). Charis thought but a moment, then decided that she would take classes to be a "sewing lady." I told her that would be a great thing to help her prepare for being a mommy. That's more than her mom knows, anyway! :-)
