Lest I get out of line…

Tonight while I was getting dressed for a church meeting, our 5-year-old came in to chat with me. We were having a nice little visit when our 3-year-old daughter came in to ask her sister to come run around with her. This was the conversation I overheard:

3-year-old: Come play! Let’s run in our new shoes!

5-year-old: Ummm, not right now.

3-year-old: Please??

5-year-old: [Stepping closer to her sister, and lowering her voice so I wouldn’t hear] I need to stay here and keep an eye on mommy, to make sure she makes right choices.

I’m still chuckling about that one! :) I laughed so hard when they left. I can’t imagine what she thought I was going to do. Good thing I’ve got someone keeping an eye on me. This mommy can sure get out of hand. :)

    She knows about your scandalous college days, spying in hooded sweatshirts… Either that or she knows about chocolate chips and peanut butter…
