Hope comes home from school, all excited because she “earned” a prize. She shows us an ipod. We are stunned and speechless for a solid minute. The Dad recovered first and took the ipod from her. He turned it around and saw his name and phone number etched on the back of the ipod. No explanation convinced Hope she was caught.
Now it seems funny in a lot of ways. After all, she IS only 6. It is also scary. Hope’s ability to see things as she wants them to be, instead of how they are, has me worried about the future.
