Yesterday, in his infinite wisdom, Spencer came to me while I was making dinner. He looked me straight in the eye and said, "Mom, you tell the best advice. I like what you say; sometimes it's even better than Mrs. Vanas (his teacher)."
Taking that compliment with a grain of salt, meaning I think we could have done without the Mrs. Vanas comment, but I'm glad he trusts his teacher...she is with him all day long, I looked right back at him and said, "Thanks, buddy."
Now, let's see if we can have that conversation in another six years when he's twelve!
