"Yeah." The usual response. And off she runs.
"Mom. I need to make a tag for Annabelle. In case she gets picked up by the dognapper." (She's been watching the Lady and the Tramp movies. I didn't tell her we have one for her around here, somewhere.) "So we need to get out the shrinky-dink stuff."
"Wanna make one for your binoculars, too, while you're at it? So you and Trevy know which is which?"
"How d'you spell Annabelle?"
"Mom. Here. Play this game with me. I love this game!!"
Katamino is hard. :) (Funny how when something is new, it's difficult at first. Tangrams? No problem. Zip right through them. Pentas? Yeah. Well.)
"Dad and I are going birdwatching."
"You c'n take a picture of Meeeeeee!"
Off with Dad for a zooming bikeride.
And Grammie came for a couple-of-hours visit.
An' there was swingin' high-to-the-sky on the tree swing.
There was a little interruption in there about all that messy online and ill-fated fuss yesterday.
Which shall not be named, as it is decidedly not invited into my world.
Wanna hear Maddie's take on it?
"I'm glad my parents aren't like that. I mean.... if my parents were like that, then I'd be like that... and maybe my kids...you're parents would be like that... theirs and theirs... all the kids would... then Everybody would be like that!!"
Just like that. So very clear to her how it works.
So grateful. So happy that it stops here, and love reigns.
And guess what?
