Tell It Like It Is

I'm not sure, but I think Catherine has been trying to tell me something lately. The other night, just before bed, we were all gathered in William's room to read a book and I was sitting on one of those little bouncy jumpy balls with the handle....William got one for Christmas. I didn't see a weight limit posted on it, but it looked sturdy enough to hold me and I thought I was balancing on it quite well. Catherine looked up and said flatly, "I think you're too big for that."

Excuse me?

"I SAID, I think you're too big for that. Get OFF, Mama. You'll break it." And with that she walked over to me and pushed me off. Little Hitler.

So then this morning I was getting her dressed for school and out of the blue she said "You're big and Daddy is little."

Well good for him.

Tell us how you really feel, Catherine.

Maybe you should remind her that, along with herself, you carried her two brothers in your belly for a combined total of 27 months--that's a grand total of 837 days...
