Miriam took some star-shaped beads and put them in a jewelry box; this has kept the girls occupied for many happy minutes. She was just telling me about them and said the pink one was her favorite, she didn’t really like the black or green, and the pink and purple were “special good” and she needed to play with those.
She is also now my self-appointed phone screener. Apparently she refused to let my sister in law talk with me when she called my cell phone earlier.
Christina will earnestly coo really long accounts of her day… almost without stopping for 20 minutes+. And I am thinking to myself, “What have I let myself in for? I have three chatty girls in my house!!” Imagine when they are 4, 6 and 7?? I will start saving up now for the deluxe headphone system that blocks sound to my ears and contains a hidden tape recorder that plays “Mm hmmm” in my own voice at random intervals. I’ll have to get Q to design that for me.
