Last weekend we had a fire in the fire pit on our deck. It was super fun because it saved me from having to shred a year's worth of financial documents (it's amazing what a little lighter fluid can do.)
It was also fun because it created a focal point while the 6 of us just hung out and chatted.
At one point my younger son asked my younger daughter to dance. It was adorable.
Then my older son said, "Can I try?"
"No," I told him, "You ask, 'can i cut in'?"
So he asked and my daughter turned to him.
The younger son asked, INCREDULOUS, "You're DUMPING me?"
Every time I think of it I laugh.
