Feeling at Home

Two quotes from a kid who lived in four states by the time he was five years old.

We were driving along chatting, after having been in New York about a year. Curious as to how my Baby Boy was fitting in, I innocently asked, "So, how do you like New York?"

He turned to me and asked in a very concerned voice, "Why?"

(he's had too many chats about how it's time to move to a new place...)

Then last night Hubby took him to his elementary school teacher basketball game. He had a ball, hanging out with friends he has known for almost two years now. This morning we were discussing how fun it had been and he sighed and said wistfully, "It's good to know people."

I guess that phrase means something different to adults but to a seven year old it means security.
