It’s been awhile hasn’t it?! Funny how time slips away from us when we get all busy with remodeling parts of our houses (Maren) sending kiddos off to college (Lynn), and. . . . and . . . . . well, to tell you the truth, I don’t have a great excuse for not posting, except for changing diapers. That counts, right?
Well, anyway, I am currently being hounded by Miss 2 for a constant stream of snacks. She is very rapidly outgrowing Miss 4 and is the first baby I’ve ever had who is actually in the size of clothes that matches her age! And I think it’s because she is also the first baby I’ve had who likes to eat.
Every morning at about 10:00 it goes something like this:
Miss 2: Mom! I want a snack!
I agree and then she starts the pestering.
Miss 2: I want a popcorn snack.
If I don’t respond quickly enough and by that I mean, if I don’t respond at the speed of light, she tries again with different emphasis.
Miss 2: I want a popcorn snack. I want a popcorn snack. I waaaaant a popcorn snaaaaaaaack. I want a popcorn snack.
How can I possibly resist this? Everyday I pop her a bag of microwave popcorn and then she asks for chocolate milk. I do not even try to withstand her pleas. I just hurry to get out the milk before she starts changing emphasis!
You can imagine my surprise about 5 minutes ago when she suddenly changed her request.
She just ran up to me and said, “Mom, I want a snack!”
I agreed and started to pull out the popcorn, but she had other ideas in mind.
Miss 2: Mom! I want an M & M snack!
Strangely enough, I actually have M & M’s in my house and this sounds like such a good idea, I think I am going to go join her for a snack. (quickly, before she changes emphasis!) If you want us, we’ll be here, lazing around and enjoying M & M’s, chocolate milk and of course, Diet Coke!
