LE is having a verbal boom! All of a sudden she's saying and asking the most adorable things. I even got asked "But why, mommy?" I know...that one won't be as adorable after the bajillionith time.
The other day I was pulling LE around in a laundry basket...just for kicks...and the handle popped off and hit me right in the eye. I proceeded with the appropriate yelling of "OUCH" followed by wallowing on the ground. You know, I like to keep it real in front of my kid. It's good for her or I'm weak, one or the other. Anyway, LE's response had me feeling better in no time!
"What happened, sweetheart, mommy?"
I'll give you a moment to melt.
She repeated this question about ten times and followed up with plenty of kisses. It's times like this that I feel like an awesome parent. Of course, I felt like a pretty terrible parent when she repeatedly tried to kick her friend at the park, but we'll just those moments slide...chalk them up to a lack of sleep or something.
