Tonight's bedtime conversation with Doodle made me chuckle.
Doodle: Wouldn't it be great if we could erase all the mistakes that we've made in life?
Me: What mistakes have you made?
Doodle: Buying too many stuffed animals, especially Web*kinz. I packed some of them up; maybe they'll be worth something some day. (I didn't burst her bubble.)
An amused me, probing a bit more: Have you made any other mistakes?
Doodle: Not finding out more about cooking camp before going. (Both girls are at cooking camp this week; Doodle has a few issues with how the camp is being run. Tootle seems to be happy to cook and eat her way through the day.)
After a moment of silence, Doodle asked me what mistakes I would erase. I replied that I would have to think about the question before answering it because a change could have unforeseen consequences and result in changes to things that I love about my life. We agreed that correcting her "mistakes" would not alter the state of the world:)
