So I've been a little absent lately. We found out last week our babysitter is moving this summer. She's cared for both the girls since they were eight/nine weeks old and I went back to work. They love her. We love her. I'm in denial that this is happening (but we are really happy for you, B, if you are reading this.)
So I've been dealing with that, busy with a big project at work and really, it's been so nice in the evenings that we've spent a lot of time playing outside leaving me little time to blog.
But, after Peanut asked me why she has to go to the bathroom every night and if you have to be born to be a baby, I thought it might be fun to ask her a few questions. Preschoolers' minds are all kinds of awesome. So here goes:
What do you love about mommy?
Um, I love mommy to the moon and back and I love you.
What's fun about mommy?
Playing with you. Tickling and doing this ... (she makes a funny face, pulling her mouth in different directions with her fingers.)
What do you love about daddy?
I love him to the moon and back.
What's fun about daddy?
Tickling me and playing with me and I don't know what else? (her interest in these is already starting to wane.)
What's fun about sissy?
I love playing with her. When she shares with me. Going downstairs with me. Watching her dance. Shake her booty. That's all I like.
What do mommy and daddy do at work?
They eat their snacks...Remember that time we went to daddy's work and his work people gave me a book? Where is it? I'll have to find it later. (This happened about 18 months ago. I have no idea how she remembered it.)
What's your favorite song?
ABC, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. I like to sing "I love you on the moon tonight when you come to my city but if we don't know each other then we aren't friends where are we going?" (I don't even know but it gets better. Just wait.)
What's favorite thing to play?
Strawberry Shortcake, at school, with sister, with momma, daddy, mammy and pa and my cousins, and Lucy, it's fun playing with all the people. I just want to sing the rest of my song. "If you don't love me, I will love you. Our heart makes us feel sad and makes the people sad..."(see, even better. I don't even know where she gets the drama llama but I'm pretty sure she's going to be the next Taylor Swift.)
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be a police officer and go to work and be a mom and dad and I don't know what else?
I love this kid.
