Paul was driving the kids to church yesterday, I have to play for choir after church so I took a seperate car, and my daughter Elizabeth struck up a conversation:
“We have to watch the game today.”
“What game?” Paul was momentarily baffled because (watch out, this is scandalous, I know) we are not big sorts watchers and never watch the super bowl.
“The one with the Sea Hawks and the Steelers. We have to see who wins, my teacher said so!” Apparantly her teacher had talked to them about the big game and I think there was a canned food drive to go along with it.
“The Super Bowl?” Paul asks rather amazed.
“Yeah!” Dorothy pipes up, “My teacher told us about it too!”
The topic was forgotten as we arrived at church and no one mentioned the conversation to me until about 5:30 when Paul flipped the TV on and switched to the Super Bowl.
“Since when do you watch the Super Bowl?” I asked amazed and chuckling. He related the story and we laughed at how the girls knew more about it than I did and so we watched snippets of the Super Bowl with our girls so they could see who one. At one stage Elizabeth pipes up, “I want the Sea Hawks to win. Come on Sea Hawks, you have to win!!”
“Why do you want the Sea Hawks to win?” Paul asked.
“Their name is nicer. The other one is “Steal” with “ers” on the end and that isn’t very nice!”
Oh, I love the reasoning of children! 🙂 And I watched the Super Bowl for the first time in my life. (I know you are all shaking your heads at how pathetic I am. Hee hee)
