Dans la lune

Tonight as I was reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond to the Jack and Joel, Joel interrupted me with this: "Mom, why do you stop like that for a few seconds while you are reading?  You do it a lot"

I smiled at his observation and my own realization of this truth.  "Do you know why I did it this time?  I was trying to remember a French word that I heard today."

Jack said, "What is it?"

"Écharder I think, but I'm not really sure."

Jack again, "What was the context?"

"I think it was something to do with a cat, but I really don't know.  I wanted to look it up."

More and more every day I see that Jack comes by his distracted nature honestly.  Sorry, kid.
