My Angel: Mindfreak

“Abba-ca-dabba… and Mommy is a lion.”

G is pointing her magical Tinkertoy baton in my direction.

Okay, that’s easy!

“Rooooaaarrr!” I growl at her. She giggles.

“Abba-ca-dabba... and Mommy is a statue”.

Hmmm, another easy one. I just keep my face frozen in a downward gaze. I’ll have to admit, I’m only half-way paying attention to her; the other half is trying to sort out two dozen piles of documents spread around the floor. I guess my stupefied expression is enough to satisfy her.

“Abba-ca-dabba… Mommy is my mommy!”

I missed that one. Still staring at the papers, trying to make sense of them, putting together a filing system in my head … her little voice only registers fleetingly with me.

Abba-ca-dabba… MOMMY IS MY MOMMY!”

She’s gesticulating frantically in my direction, waiting for me to respond and come back to earth.

I snap out of it and give her a smile.

“YAY, the magic worked. Mommy is back. I love you Mommy!”

Now if only that magic baton could grant Mommy a few extra hours in the day…and perhaps an extra brain!

Aww! That is very cute. You know, in a funny way your children do give you an extra brain. (or at least a divided one!)

What a great game. I'm getting a little weary of "Stop and Go, " which is the V-meister's favorite of late (although you can get a lot done during that one, too.)

They do have magic at that age don't they? Now if she tries to saw you in half ... I'd pay more attention :)

If you find that magic wand that will extend your time, will you lend it to me?

Could she teach me how to make Wonderbaby into a statue? That'd be awesome.

cute. I often wonder what it would be like with a girl instead of The Boy.

Oh she's SOOOO cute. I wanna put her in a sandwich and eat her! (I always say that to my kids, and the Princess replies "just 'tend mommy, ok? Cause if you really eat my baby brother I will cry for a million days")

It's sad when kids catch you dazing off into the distance and you have to come up with a lie about what you were daydreaming about because they would never understand: provence, wheat fields, deep blue sky and soft, soft skin

The other day, Jack was asking me to look at him performing a gymnastics move, and I said, "I see!," but I wasn't really looking, and he said:

"Mommy! Don't pretend look!"

Oops....

How sweet! Abba-ca-dabba. :)
