My first brag. This just happened and it was one of those moments that caught me by surprise.

I was sitting having lunch with dd5. She seemed lost in thought.

Me: What are you thinking about?

dd5: I'm just thinking that I really like my life.

Me: What do you mean?

dd5: Just that I'm lucky I have such a great family. A nice house. We live in a really good state with a children's museum and a zoo. I go to a great school. We go on field trips. I'm really lucky.

Me: (silence)

dd5: Thanks for picking out such a nice house for us, mom, and choosing for us to live here.

Me: (eyes full of tears) You're welcome.
