Suddenly saturday

if you’ve been reading, you’ll know that i am in the throes of re-arranging my life with a new schedule and it has been a very positive adjustment in every aspect of my life (minus the lack of seeing good friends on a regular basis, but this is arranging itself out, too).

i have spent a lovely saturday morning tending to house stuff and enjoying two little girls play together. E and N have known eachother since birth and it really is incredible to watch how with each stage they change the way that they interact with eachother. this morning they insisted on sharing a “quiet time” and made me set them up in E’s bed so that they could read books to each other. i stayed beyond the door and listened to their little conversation discussing In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak. Familiar with this book? It has a little naked boy in it (and apparently this was so offensive to some that they banned the book).

anyway, here is a snippet of that conversation:


N: hee hee heeeee

E: Mickey has a PEANUT.

N: hee hee hee

E: But girls don’t have peanuts

N: hee hee hee

Quite succinct and quite right.
