We were on the way to a tournament with our youngest daughter and her friend. Her friend has a reputation as a reader, and my daughter was giving her a hard time about it. Her friend pointed out that kids who read have a better vocabulary than kids who don't. My daughter said, "Why do I need the word "domicile" when I have "house" and "home" already. Nope, I have all the words I need."
Now, why would a mother not be proud of that? (eye roll)
