Everyday my 6 year old son collects rocks. He puts them in his pocket. Everyday I wash the pants (& the rocks). Every night I open the dryer door and pull the rocks out because they are loud. I hate the rocks! I should say I hated the rocks until today... When I pulled out today's rock. I actually looked at this one. It was pretty. It was actually really pretty in a rock kind of way. I then thought of my little guy on the playground taking a minute for himself away from all the teacher's demands, the kids and the noise to just go and find a cool looking rock. Good for him! So, I went in the kitchen and got a jar to start collecting his rocks. I won't tell him I am collecting them because then he will start collecting them for me and that will change which rocks HE likes. One day, when he gets his own office, I will give him the rocks. He can use it as a cool bookend or a neat manly decoration. Until then, I will collect the rocks as long as he does and I will appreciate the loud rocks in my dryer. If you can't beat em, join em. Right?
