Early motherhood

While I was sick, Tiny's dad couldn't get a substitute, and I was unhappily stuck. One night, from the bed, I instructed Sweetie in microwaving chicken nuggets for them. She's never managed the whole process by herself before, so I was pretty happy she did it without any shenanigans, until I got up two hours later and found the bag of chicken in the middle of the kitchen floor, rather than in the freezer. Anyway, as I lay, half-sleeping, half-listening for misbehavior, I heard from the other room,

"I didn't make 'em for you play with, I made 'em for you eat."

Well, I think she's gonna be a good mother someday.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery :)

I love it when I hear them imitating us! It's also very helpful when they play "school" and let me know exactly what's happening in the classsroom and how the teacher reacts. Btw, please put in ages. It's hard to understand who you're talking about otherwise.

I don't think we ever officially reached a decision on the cast lists. Unless not deciding means we decided on stating the ages every time. A hassle, IMO. I'll gladly do the work to put in cast lists, however we want to design them.

Sweetie is 6 and Tiny is 4.
