Today, my 9-year old had a particularly slow eating day. Both breakfast and lunch just seemed to take forever. When dinner threatened to be a similar experience, my other children commented on it.
This prompted the 9-year old to adopt a dramatic voice and to announce tensely:
“It’s a clue! Either, my body is slowing down…or the world is speeding up!”
Apparently, I get the blame for where she gets it from.
