Time Out

Scene - Daycare, interior. Mommy is walking Kate and Sarah out to the car after a long day at work.

Kate: [unprompted, swear to God] Mommy, you are very beautiful and I certainly love you very much!

Mommy: [heart melting into sticky sweet puddle] Oooooooh, Kate, thank-you! I certainly love you very much, too!

Kate: If you say nice things to your mommy, like she's beautiful, then you won't get a time out.

Sarah: [giggles]

Mommy: Ooooh.

Sounds like you'd better check into which daycare worker taught her that. Kate needs to learn not to blow her cover!!

AND- Sarah is on to the whole thing!

That's really true, Boomin' Granny. Sometimes I come to this blog just to read your wise and poignant comments, so like poetry. Beautiful. Beautiful!

I don't really have anything to add here, but the word verification is "thingedu" which I thought deserved being used.

Thingedu - [thing-eh-doo] That thing you do. That voodoo that you do so well.
