No, hubby and I have not adopted another child. And those of you keeping track know that the Kobester and Haniroo are both ten and under. But every once in awhile I get a glimps of things to come...
Tehani came home from school the other day with some things from her Jr Jazz basketball team. You know the usual stuff--practice info, game schedule, free ticket to a BYU game and such. She then announces...
Tehani: "So I'm going to need a ride."
Norm: "Well, you don't have a game tonight."
Tehani: "Not to MY game. I need to be dropped off at BYU so I can use my BYU ticket."
Apparently our eight year old thinks she is old enough to get dropped at Marriott Center--"Have fun at the 22,000 seat arena, Tehani. We'll see you in a couple hours!" I tried to explain to her that the ticket was for her to go to a game WITH a parent but I am not sure that she grasped (or liked) that idea. So much for Tehani's Day Out.
PS--I'm hoping to go as long as possible before Tehani finds out that tweens get dropped off at the mall all the time sans parents. We'll see how long I can keep that a secret :)
