Ane Speaks – It’s a race!

On our way home yesterday from baseball practice/Grandma and Gichan’s house (they picked Ane up yesterday from baseball), Ane asked me, “Mom, how old do I have to be to drive?”

“Sixteen, like Auntie,” I replied.

Ane gave a big, heaving sigh. “But I want to be older!”

“Honey, you grow at the rate that God lets you. You are plenty grown-up for a five-year-old.”

Frustrated, Ane replied, “But Auntie and I are in a race to see who will be grown up first!”

After putting my jaw back into place and stifling a laugh, I said, “Oh, Ane, I think you’ve lost this one, because Auntie already has eleven years on you.”

Another big, heaving sigh. “All right, I guess I’ll let Auntie win this one.”
