A family with 9 children hosted us at their house for dinner last night. They invited a couple other families with multitudes of children over as well, and served a delicious meal to all of us.
Much to Zoe’s delight, there were little girls. And there were dollies. And a dolly house.
And then it was time to go home, and I strapped her into her seat, and next thing you know, she is dissolving into hysterics. Total hysterics. When I had explained the day to her, and what we were going to be doing, I had somehow forgotten to tell her we were going back to my cousin’s house that night to sleep. And she thought we were going to sleep at her new friend’s house.
“No mine can’t go MOMMY!!! No Mine didn’t sleep here at mine FRIEND’S house! NO!!!!! Mine can’t GO!!!!”
It was sad. Within a few minutes, it was all explained and her heart was satisfied. Going back to the cousin’s sounded pretty good, and within 5 minutes she was asleep in her car seat.
Mine love mine little girl. She is so transparent. So honest.
