He came up to me and said, "I am making a checklist for you. What do mommies do?"
So I asked a rather dangerous question: "What do you think mommies do?"
Here is his checklist in the order he told them to me:
- Put on makeup
- Get dressed
- Dry hair
- Brush teeth
- Spit the toothpaste out of mouth
- Make lunch
- Make supper
- Make dinner
- Play croquet
At the beginning of the list, I was nodding and agreeing with him. When he got to number 8, I did ask him how many meals he thought we ate in a day. I get the impression that dinner is his fancy word for a snack.
Number 9 just made me laugh. I asked him if he even knew what croquet was. He was a little put off by my laughing and responded, "I know what croquet is! It is....well, you....what is croquet?"
Since I am already ready for the day, have spit the toothpaste out of my mouth, and it is not time for lunch yet, I guess I will break out the ol' croquet set and go do whatever you do when you play croquet.
