Wow! I have the best readers EVER! I love all of your comments, thanks a bunch! I love reading what everyone has to say.
I'm sure that I've mentioned before what I do for a living. I work with kids with severe emotional/behavioral disabilities. Go put that in perspective, I got called a f!@#ing b!@#h over 50 times yesterday (I stopped counting after 50) by a 6 year old. He was mad because he didn't want to do his math. An hour later he was back to loving me. I love my job!
I'm going out to see Ms. Denali after work tomorrow (I hope.) I haven't been out this week (so when you write about having your horse 5 minutes from you, you're SO lucky!!) I took a friend's daughter out on Monday. She is 7 and was IN LOVE with Denali. Apparently the little munchkin went home and was pretending to be a horse. I guess her conversation with her mom went something like this.
Mom: Hi Mary, did you have fun.
Kid: YES! I'm not Mary, I'm Denali. (At which point she started cantering around.)
(10 minutes passed)
Kid 2 (older sister): MOM!! Mary just kicked me!
Mom: Mary! Why did you kick your sister?
Kid: I'm not Mary! I'm Denali, and sometimes I'm a naughty horse!!
Opps! Maybe I shouldn't have kids of my own.
