I think it’s only fair that I pair off the six-year-old-acting-out posts with the posts describing adorable exploits of the same child. Last weekend DrMrA and I left the kids with the grandparents and headed off for an overnight in not-too-far-away big city. When I was packing the overnight bag- LittleA (who wasn’t too pleased that we were going FYI), and I had the following conversation:
LittleA: Mommy, where are you and Daddy going to eat dinner tonight?
Me: Ummm. I don’t know yet littleA (big lie, I knew where we were going but didn’t want to endure the tantrum that might have ensued if I had told her we were going someplace she likes)…
LittleA: Mommy, you should go somewhere ROMANTIC!
Me: Oh- really, why do you say that LittleA?
LittleA: Because you LOVE each other.
Huh. I guess she actually listens to all that propaganda about how Mommies and Daddies sometimes need time alone together because they love each other. Who knew?
At some point we’ll have a good laugh about what the kids say about sex… (in an unrelated conversation) … which is mostly……eeeeeewwww, gross….. but has taken some rather hysterical (for me anyway) turns.
