Nothing About This Will Be Shocking

Would you believe who has been wearing around my glasses?

And taking pictures of herself?

Of course you would.

Seeing as these glasses are not fake (although I wouldn't put it past me), I have no idea how she's avoiding headaches of great magnitude.

But she wears the glasses around whenever they're not on my head.

She has also been borrowing my deodorant and favorite spray fragrance every morning.

Maybe this is an identity crisis as she approaches five.

(We ARE saving for braces.)

(And some sort of prestigious theater school.)

(And counseling.)
You cannot even imagine the amount of intensity and drama she brings to every situation.

Lately, I've been trying to teach the kids the value of empathy.

Of course, it's backfired.

After she had an incredibly minor finger injury the other day, I apparently wasn't doling out the empathy like she wanted.

How do I know?

This is what I heard: "Mommy, how would you feel if you were the kid and I was the Mom and you were bleeding all over the place and hurting worse than you've ever hurt before and all I said was, 'You'll be okay'?"

To which I lovingly responded, "I would appreciate the uncompromised truth."


"No you wouldn't! It would hurt you deeper than you've ever been hurt before."

*sigh*

And then I turned around to keep from laughing.

Oh, sweet girl! I will say that Lanie will need a roommate for the dorms up at that prestigious theater school the girls are going to. She would love it if Lily joined her.
