olson {family}

"You know my mom?" one of the littles said to me.  She held my hand as we walked across the grass. 

"Yep.  For a long time," I answered.  I didn't tell her about the time her mom and I almost got kicked out of a courtroom for laughing too loud and being disruptive.  I didn't tell her about the scandalous things she wrote in my yearbook.  I didn't tell her about jumping out of the window of ninth grade English when the teacher wasn't looking.  Maybe she'll hear these things one day.   

What I did tell her is that her mom is amazing.  And looks really grown up in her beautiful dress.  (But I know that secretly she really wanted to run through the marble halls just to hear her heels echo.)
