Me: Does Daddy still have a boat?
Mother: No, why?
Me: Because it really bothers me that Rachel’s never been camping. When we were kids, we lived at the lake. I was skiing at her age!
Mother: You’re going to have to face it that her experiences will be different from yours. YOU never sat in a field and played with onion leaves like I did.
Me: Umm. Okay…..but I don’t think…
Mother: Well, we’re NOT buying a boat.
