4th Past

In 2004, my youngest and I took a road trip to Nederland Colorado to see Tish, a good friend of mine from junior high.  We got to attend the Nederland 4th of July parade.  It is so small, the parade circled around twice.  They didn’t have a theater so a movie was shown at the old elementary school turned community center twice a week.  Such a fun place!    

I had started calling my kids “children of the corn” as a joke to myself.  The oldest had extrapolated the title and called me “mother of the corn.”  Fairly apt.  While we were driving with everyone, my four-year old didn’t want to be in a seat belt.  I told her, “Just chill.”  She immediately yelled back, “No! You chill, MO-THER OF THE CORN!” Tish thought it was hilarious.  She says after that trip her kids still tell her, “No, you chill, mother of the corn.” At least I have a legacy.  (Good to talk to you Tish!)
