The Orange Crayon Contract

Children NEVER cease to amaze me.

They are watching, listening, and learning by example… even when you think they aren’t paying attention.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that your every move as a parent is being registered and tracked, only to have the results pulled out of nowhere, just when you least expect it.

Just moments ago, I was sitting here blogging.

My husband walked in with a question, and our daughter followed shortly after. She asked if she could speak with us for a moment. Her respectful question and tone of voice caught us off guard and persuaded us to abandon our conversation.

She cleared her throat, and proceeded to read out loud, the following:

Hmmm…. where did she come up with this idea?

The funniest part is that she refused to drop the subject because we hadn’t signed. She already knows that a contract that isn’t properly executed isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

I’m almost scared to see how her negotiating skills improve with age…
