The following conversations took place within the last 24 hours:

Mila: Mom is so good at reading minds.

Ben: What do you mean?

Mila: I was pretending to have a water bottle stuck to my face and she knew I was just pretending.

Ben: Wow.

Mila: That is ONE smart lady!


Mila: Why do you and Mom stay up and have dates watching tv after we go to bed?

Ben: Because we love each other and like to spend time together.

Mila: Love makes you do CRAZY things!

(That it does, Mila, that it does)

Mad me: Mila, you forgot your backpack!? I guess we have to turn around! You need to remember your own stuff! I can't do it for you every day!

A few minutes pass...

More calm me: OK, you stay here and I will run in and get your backpack, ok?

Mila: Mom, did you let go of the anger?

(Uh-huh, yes, of course--wha??)

There. Just a little glimpse. Stay tuned...

I still refuse to believe that Mila is a big girl! Can't wait to see you soon!!!! Glad you let go of your anger.

Are you one of those, "Don't make me turn this car around!" Moms. I sure hope so.
Seriously though....how did you know the water bottle wasn't stuck?

I have an addendum to this blog:

Yesterday when Ben was struggling to get Ethan dressed, Mila says to me, "It sounds like Daddy is not having the time of his life right now!"

Dirty Dancing, anyone?
