Out of the mouth of babes

April 12, 2010

My children and I went tothe university today and stopped by my husband’s class to put up a key.  His class was already in session when we arrived.  As we were leaving the classroom,  my five-year old son looked up at his dad and said, “Dad, I love you because you are a teacher.”  You could hear the students in the classroom make an audible sigh.  Out of the mouth of babes.

On a separate note,  graduation day is 10 days away.  It is hard to believe that I have finished my graduate work.  I remember the day that I defended my thesis and passed.  I felt like there should be a 21 gun salute followed by a ticker tape parade but it was rather anticlimatic.   I guess the pomp and circumstance comes on graduation day.   Regardless,  I have accomplished a goal that I had set some time ago and it feels good.
