The List

When I arrived home from work one night last week, Emily handed me a piece of paper with "writing" on it.

"Em, what's this?"

"It's a list for you."

"Can you read it to me? My eyes are bothering me tonight."

"Yes. It says Mommy, you need to cook. You need to go to the store. You need to go to the post office. You need to sweep. You need to brush the floor."

"I need to sweep AND brush the floor?"

"No, SWEEP."

"Oh, sleep?"

"Yes, sweep."

"I know I need to sleep, honey. Thank you."

Hmmm, brush the floor?

Kid-speak is my favorite. Now get to work on that list so you can go to sweep!

I did not know there was a Knuffle Bunny Too and Free - I'll have to look for it because we love Knuffle Bunny!

My 6 y/o still insists that when something belongs to her, "it's mind" not "mine". When I correct her, she corrects me right back. Love it!

Happy New Year!!!!!
