(More from this shoot over on my photo blog.)
Tonight, I was putting Sophia to bed and she asked:
"How many people are there in the world, mom?"
"About 6 billion.?" is this right? Sometimes I wonder how much wrong information I give my kids.
"Can you count to a billion?" I think she means, "you" in general, and I say
"me neither, but I know a short cut: 1,2,3,4,5,6 billion!"
Any time I go to write this stuff down, it doesn't sound nearly as cool as it did in person. Maybe it's the tone, or the body language, or the dramatic expressions. But sometimes I just wish our whole life was recorded. And that later, when I find all of that extra time, I could just sit around and listen to CD's filled with words from my children, and save my favorite moments and random cute thoughts at each age. I'm in a constant marvel.
Oh and happy 4th.
