Nebraska, another counrty?

My older girls have a brother who is 18. (If you don't know, I am divorced from their dad).

Scott has been in my life since he was 2. He is still a part of my life. When he was not in college, he would spend the summer with me and my husband. Sadly, he has no relationship with his father. But his sisters Sam and Casey adore him and miss him so much. (So do I!)

Anyways, my little kids LOVE Scotty also. He lives in Nebraska and we haven't seen him in a while.
He has a birthday coming up next week. I was talking to Tommy about it.

ME: Tommy, did you know Scott has a birthday coming up?

TOMMY: Really? How come we haven't seen him?

Me: Because he lives in Nebraska with his mom and that is really far.

Tommy: OH, does he speak another language in Nebraska?

Me: No, he still speaks English.

Tommy: Did he ever live in America ?

Me: Nebraska is part of America

Tommy: Oh.

So priceless.

I spent a very LONG 2 weeks in Lincoln.. I swear to this day that it IS a different country if not planet.. ha ha. Kudos to you for keeping him in your life. I know your other kids are now and will always count themselves the better for having more people to love and be loved by.

Hey stop by The Nuggets babe, YOU WON!
