"I'm really lucky." Caitlin says matter of factly at the dinner table.
"You guys are really good cooks (referring to the pork tenderloin with cherry port reduction sauce, mashed potatoes with Gruyère cheese and roasted green beans we had for New Year's Eve dinner), good parents and nice people. I'm glad you're my parents." Calmly continues eating dinner.
Stunned silence. "Caitlin...that was so sweet. Thank you. We're really glad you're our daughter." Hugs all around.
2008 is starting off well!
How's your year going?
