Don't ask how she feels about Ben

Yesterday Leah caught wind of a plot against her: We were all going to Target, so her friend A. wouldn't be able to come play at the last minute (as a favor to his mom). Evil, evil parents, we are. She spent a good amount of time crying and when I said, "Sometimes you have to spend time with just your family," she started crying, "I don't LIKE you guys!" Nice. Especially since 10 minutes later in the car she was asking for a treat at Target.

Last night she also was telling Aaron how, "Mommy doesn't know how to make rice krispie bars," AS SHE WAS EATING ONE THAT I'D MADE.

And today? What did I hear all day? "Mommy, I WANT you." Which is accompanied by outstretched arms and a plaintive expression. This is my cue to pick her up and carry her around...did you know she'll be FOUR in a month or so? Granted, she's a small four year old, but really. Mommies aren't made for hauling around 30+ lb. kids. And there's that other kid, too, that likes to be carried...at least he's not able to preface the request with "I don't like you."

Man, 4 year-olds can be so insensitive.

My sister got married last year so I wonder how long it will be before I hear the same words coming from her. Thanks for the list of blogs by the way. I’ll have to check them out, especially the photography ones. And as far as holding her, at least you get a good workout. 30 pound curls.
