When your daily activities are in concert with your highest priorities, you have a credible claim to inner peace. – Hyrum Smith

Insanity

Do you know what insanity is? It's when you do the same thing over and over and expect different results.

My children haven't quite grasped this concept. Here is a snippet of a conversation that occurs (in some variation) every day of the week in our van.

Maddie: Dyno-saw, mommy. [turn on the dinosaur song]
Parker: Maddie, look at me! [begins swaying in his seat with a gleam in his eye]
Maddie: No Bubba dance! [in her own little world, Maddie is the only person allowed to dance]
Mommy: Maddie, everyone can dance.
Maddie: Noooo! Go way, Bubba! [go away, Parker]
Parker: Maddie, I can't go away. See? I'm buckled in!
(pause)
Maddie: Hippopahmuth, mommy. [turn on the hippopotamus song]

Repeat sequence above.
Every. Single. Day.
Fun.
