We had a day recently when all our plans seemed to be crumbling and the kids were feeling diappointed that the day we thought we were going to have turned out nothing close to the vision. As we talked in the car, I channeled my best Forrest Gump and said ... "You know, Forrest Gump said life is like a box of chocolates... you never know what you're going to get. Some days are like a box of chocolates, too. You just don't know how they're going to turn out and sometimes it's very different from our own plans"
I knew they understood what I meant when Thomas sullenly added "I guess today was coconut!"
Here's hoping for a few nutty caramel days before summer ends!
