While your brother was sleeping, we had this conversation on my computer about what you could have for lunch:


I bought you turkey and cheese yesterday

 

Can I make turkey and cheese and rice pilaf

 

A)      Do you know how to make rice pilaf?

B)      If you know how to make rice pilaf, then yes, you may do so, but the turkey and cheese have to be roll-ups – no bread.  Otherwise it’s too many carbs.

C)      What if it was natures own bread? Doesn’t matter – carbs are carbs and bread is bread. What if I only had half of the rice pilaf?  Oh, girlfriend, don’t think you were going to have a whole box.  You were going to have whatever the box says is a serving size. What of I have half of that?  Well, let’s look at what that is.  1 cup, using the measuring cup. Can I have halfa cup with bread? Yes.  BUT, you still have to make the whole box, so you’ll need to put the rest of it into a container into the fridge.  AND as PUNISHMENT for making a WHOLE box and making ME smell the DELICIOUSNESS of the rice pilaf, you will have to empty the dishwasher. I think not. Go to your room. Nah im good.  Just FYI – Daddy is coming home soon.  I’m taking Peter for a Covid test at 1. L He has the chills and isn’t feeling well. Good for him, can I after school?  No – while you’re waiting the rice pilaf is simmering down, per the instructions. Fine. Bye, mother person lady thing

 You and your brother cannot stop laughing - hysterically - over what you're reading on tushy.com.

"We have to know so we know if we're making the right decisions for our anus."

You slept over Zio and Titi's house for your cousin's 4th birthday. I thought, given past issues, that you might have some separation anxiety? Nope. When I saw you this morning I had to call you over to get a hug. I guess that's progress, but it sucks for me.

1. Yesterday you woke me up by yelling "Boo!" I got mad and said, "Why did you do that??" You said, "Because it's Halloween," which is a totally valid argument. You then snuck over to scare Daddy, who was awake and you couldn't scare. When you realized this you got in his face said, "It'll happen, it'll happen."

2. About a month ago you were in the hallway and you caught me and Daddy kissing in bed - yes, just kissing. You said outloud, "Well that's an image I'm never gonna be able to get rid of."

You love to sing in the shower. We can hear you from downstairs, though you're really not loud. It's just pure, simple joy.

Sometimes I get glimpses of you not as a little girl, and it makes my heart ache.

Me: "Did your friends miss you while you were out yesterday?"

You: "I guess."

Me: "You said your friends were going to miss you."

You: "I said they were going to ask where I was."

Me: "And where did you say you were?"

You: "In the United States of Nunya."

...pause...

You: "I am so your daughter."
