The Land of Fernieville

Things kids do to show how they love you…

Today is father’s day in the US. Which is wonderful. I wish I knew how that felt…to have a dad to celebrate with, but I presume it’s, well, I don’t know. I have no clue.

Anyhow, this morning I have the kids helping make breakfast for their daddy. The 3yo hands me the eggs and the 9yo is the waitress. At some point the 3yo throws a piece of corn bread she’d been eating on the floor for whatever reason those neurons fired at that time. She was promptly put on time out and given a talkin’ to about not throwing food. She sits there on time out crying louder to show us how hurt she is for the banishing punishment and after a while declares: “I’m ready to listen now mommy.” (yup, I’ve trained her well haven’t I?

So I ask her to help me with the placemats and she found a Dora placemat I had gotten her a month ago. The same Dora placemat she hated and told me then to “give it to sissy, I don’t like it.”

After finding it she declares: “hey mommy look! it’s my Dora placemat, can I have it on the table? I’m sorry I said I didn’t like it and give it to sissy, I do like it.”

How sweet is that? I would have expected her to just declare it was hers or just have forgotten the incident as I had already forgotten…she out of the blue apologizes for having snubbed my gift a month ago.

Daddy had his heart shaped fried eggs served by his little princesses and prepared by his queen. Life is good indeed.Technorati Tags: , , ,
