[rushing out of our driveway on the way to school]
Me: Hey Maddie, did you know that even grownups have to practice things a lot to get better at them? Like me, for example—something I need to practice is how to get us all out of the house to get you to school by the time kindergarten starts so we're not rushing and behind all the time. What do you need to practice to get better at?
Maddie: Ribbit. You know, the game that's like baseball but with a different kind of bat.
Me: You mean CRICKET??
Maddie: YES! Cricket. That's what I meant.
