Today you both were playing and A was pushing a laundry basket around on the pergo floor acting like it was a boat of some kind. A little while later A said, "Mom, I have to show you something. I'm sorry I damaged the floor." I looked down and there were some light scratches that I'm sure will buff out. Once A saw I wasn't mad, she said, "It's no big deal I guess. We don't care. We're buying a farm."
I had to laugh. Yes, you, your dad and I would all like to be out on a few acres. Me and your dad for the 'away-ness' of it all and you, so you can finally get your horse. (Keep in mind I say 'finally' and you are 4 1/2 years old as I'm writing this. [big smile]
Someday...we'll learn patience as we wait. A, I think you might be like your mom and be a little short on the patience thing. M, I think you may have lucked out and gotten your dad's genes for that...
