Until I was 16...
...and driving, I didn't really pay that much attention to street names and how to get from point A to point B. That is why what Hannah did the other night completely baffles me. It was pretty late in evening (for dinner anyway) and we had just gotten home from a long day and hadn't had a chance to catch dinner yet. So we decided that we would run to Wendy's and just grab some chicken sandwiches and be done with it. Joey and I jumped in the car with Hannah and headed out. I decided that I would let Joey drop me off at the store to pick up a few things that I needed to take to church the next day while he and Hannah drove thru at Wendy's which is in the same parking lot. As we pulled into the lot, Hannah hollers out, "there it is, I see it, I see Wendy's!" Not surprising as we have been to Wendy's plenty of times and she generally recognizes places that she enjoys going like church, McDonalds, Chik-fil-a, even some people's houses. But, what she said next is what floored me..."there it is, turn dat way, tward de Beltway!" She actually knew the name of the street that ran alongside Wendy's! That is why I think my 3 year old is smart. I know it's not just in my head and I don't think that just because she's mine...she really is smart!
