Around Here, Lately

Morning breakfast on the counter. The child knocks over her juice glass, of course. I overreact maybe just a little, mostly because I KNEW THAT WAS COMING.

Me: (cleaning counter/cupboards/floor, furiously) No more juice in a cup! Ever! EVER!

L: *silent*

Me: *various grumbling and pregnancy-related-bending pain*

L: (quietly, respectfully) C'est pas grave, Maman. (It's not a big deal, Maman).

Me: (guilty) You're right, c'est pas le fin du monde. (it's not the end of the world).

I give her a hug and she puts her hands on each side of my face.

L: C'est le fin de TOI! (It's the end of YOU!)

Hit the nail right on the head, kid.

*****************************************

Bedtime. Story is done, prayers are done, time for kisses and hugs.

L: Un gros câlin Maman! (A big hug Maman!)

T: *big hug*

L: say "mmmmmm"!

T: *big hug, this time growling mmmm in her ear*

L: Ca sent les cheveux à Maman. (Smells like Maman's hair)

T: What does my hair smell like?

L: C'est bon, like Maman!

I think that's a good thing.

And then the obligatory sign off:

T: I love you!

L: I love you! Je t'aime!

T: Je t'aime! Bonne nuit!

L: Bonne nuit! Good night!

In that order. Otherwise we start over.

Have a great long weekend!
