That’s my girl

Right now I am listening to my daughter play in her bedroom with her brother and a friend. They’ve been playing “grownup” all morning (in between coloring and drawing; I suppose we all need to take breaks from being grownups once in a awhile).

But as I was straightening the kitchen I heard the following conversation:

Abbie: Where is my [toy] computer? I can’t find my [toy] computer!

(:::shudders::: the horror!!!)

Quinn: What do you need it for?

(silly silly boy; must you even ask such a thing?)

Abbie: I must check my blog! I’ve got some important things to write down for my blog!

(be still my heart; I AM teaching her well, after all)

Computer was found – potential life-scarring event averted and she began tapping out some sort of story of recent events.

    Karla – that is great!! Yes, you are teaching her well! :)

    I am so excited to finally get on your blog. We were housesitting at my parents until today and their (dial-up) computer would not allow your blog to open.

    I’ve been trying to check for days!

    I like the new photo, by the way. You look really happy…like you were with really good friends or something! :)

    Love you!!

    Raise up a child in they way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.

    You’re taking that one to new levels!

    That is too cute!

    I’ve been telling my 6-year-old that mommy has a website.

    The more I think about that word choice, however, I think blog sounds better. ;)
