Oh…the things children say…. Three year old Delaney has decided she would like a sister. Dropped that one on Daddy yesterday and decided to push the issue with Mommy and Cooper at bedtime. Her reasoning? “If I have a sister, then we can put THAT ONE (pointing at Cooper) back.” Yep…wants one year old Cooper to head back (wherever ‘back’ might be!)
Of course, Cooper didn’t understand and Jeff and I laughed for a good 15 minutes, while trying to explain, in our most serious grown-up-can’t-keep-the-smile-down faces…Cooper is staying. He’s a real person, a brother, a son and a sweet little boy…and he isn’t going away.

“Mommy, you don’t match very well.” Doesn’t sound like a big slam, but it is….I do work so very hard to do things ‘right’ in my children’s eyes.

Don’t misunderstand…the mis-match was a blatant foul in Delaney’s eyes. 🙂

The extra pair of panties in case of an accident? The High School Musical DVD? The Marshmallows? And, yet, its my inability to match a cup with a lid that gets your attention!
That’s ok…I’ll live to fight another day. You are sleeping and I’m dusting off my Mommy-cape. I promise, tomorrow, all of your cups and lids will match!
