Due to snow in the forecast, school was cancelled Friday. No snow arrived, but schools were closed.
I took some leave from work and Caroline helped me clean the house. Claire opted to go to daycare which was open.
I asked Caroline to unload the dishwasher, and went to scrub down the bathroom.
From the next room I hear her laugh. She yelled “Guess what Mom?!”
(Because at this point she had wanted me to check/praise her progress a minimum of 6 times already on the dish unloading. Which I had dutifully done. But my enthusiasm for praise was waning)
Caroline cackled “I’m a POT-HEAD”
She had my attention now. That’s not a phrase she should know.
I scurried into the kitchen and saw this…
She was talking about an actual POT on her HEAD….not making a reference to drug culture.
The innocence of children.
Have a good week friends.
