On our way home from this evening's track meet, I drove with Ten and a friend through a nearby town known for its large Victorian homes. I indulged in a little real-estate envy over my favorite turreted homes with big wraparound porches and tricolor paint jobs.
Like all my children, Ten is used to this behavior. He began daydreaming too: "Mom, you know what I'm gonna do for you when I become a professional soccer player? I'll buy you one of these big houses in this town."
"Wow, thanks!" I replied. "Will it have a big porch, and a special room where I can keep all my books?"
"Sure," he told me.
"And don't forget a comfy chair," I reminded him.
"OK, I'll get you a nice comfy chair," he decided. "And a couple of new books. And a new heating pad."
