We recently traveled to Seattle, WA to visit some of my husband’s relatives. Our two daughters loved Pike Place Market, where we grazed on a variety of the delicious food available for sale. They enjoyed spending the day with their cousins at the zoo, despite my 10-year-old still limping after her recent foot surgery. They were, however, confused about the space needle.
“That doesn’t look like a ship. Why is it round?” queried my 7-year-old. “Is that what a space ship really looks like?”
“Yes,” I replied, “Every space ship that abducted me looked just like that.”
Perhaps I didn’t help alleviate her confusion. My 10-year-old gave me her typical “crazy Mom” eye roll, which I’m seeing more and more everyday since she became a tween.
