On the way home from Target Ellie says,
"I wish my life were different."
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"I wish I didn't spill my drink all over my carseat" Ellie replied.
"Well," I say, "life is full of struggles and trials and things we can't control. The sooner you realize that the easier your life is going to be." (I'm the real pessimist I know....but it's true!)
Ellie replies, "I'll try to do that as fast as I can."
