Today I was sitting on the couch resting for a moment when Brooklyn and Roman approached me with their arms filled with toys. They set them down on the coffee table in front of me and then Brooklyn grabbed a toy, put in my hand and said, "Say beep." I said it, thinking nothing of it, because actually my mind was on other things. She then grabbed the toy out of my hand, set it down, picked up another toy, placed that in my hand and commanded me again to "beep." It was about the eleventh mandatory "beep" that I finally asked her why I had to do this and she said very matter-of-factly, "Because we are buying these things."
I guess when I take time out from being a housekeeper I automatically transistion into becoming a cash register with built-in scanner. The things I learn.
