So Hope and I are walking around Target. She looks up at me and says "Daddy says that whenever we go shopping anywhere you always walk like 5 feet behind him and it's super irritating."

I reply, "Really."

Hope says, "uh-huh."

I ask Hope, "Hmmm, what else does Daddy say about Mommy when Mommy's not around?"

Without missing a beat, Hope replies with "He says he's smarter than you."

I calmly look at her and say, "Oh really."


I ask her, "Hope, has Daddy ever told you that when he tells you stuff like that he doesn't want you to tell Mommy about it?"

She gets a great big grin and replies, "Nope."

I tell her, "Hope - we'll let Daddy think he's the smart one - but you and I know who's really the smart one don't we?"

She says, "Oh you're the smart one."

I tell her, "Okay - but it's our secret, don't tell Daddy, okay?"



Kurt has much to learn.
