Domestic Bliss Report

Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

Guileless

Rachel, trying not to cry: "Mamma, Mahee..."
Me, coming around the corner and noticing she's right next to the cat: "Did Molly bite you, honey?"
Rachel, not making eye contact: *sniffle* "No."
Me, kneeling and patient: "Rachel, did Molly hurt you?"
Rachel, shaking her head: "No..."
Me: "Rachel, where did Molly bite you?"
Rachel, pointing to her arm: "Right dere."


Like when I took the older two shopping for Daddy's Christmas present. A long talk on the way back about surprises, and the first thing she says when we get in the house: "Daddy, we got you ties for Christmas! I chose a blue one like your and my eyes but Dale liked yellow even though Mamma tried to show him other ones."

Gotta love it.
Secrets are SO beyond kids, and it's really fun to watch them when they have one.
