I just overheard the following coming from one of Lila's school friends while playing make-believe outside:

"We miss our daughter. [fake crying] She died like Darth Vader. [more fake crying]"

Other fantastic things said by 3-year-olds today:

Lila: "I love you, Mother."
Me: "I love you, too, Daughter."
Lila: "You are my most special Valentine ever."


Lila: "All my little kitties are called Meshacks."

I love 3-year-olds.

This doesn't really have much to do with your post, this was just a faster way to get a message to you than signing on to email. This is a quote from a character from Stephen King's book Duma Key that I thought was very true:)
"When it comes to your kids, you find yourself making some weird calls from time to time and just hoping they turn out all right - calls and kids. Parenting is the greatest of hum-a-few-bars-and-I'll-fake-it skills." The last line is my favorite.
