her first DELIBERATE joke!

Little Miss Natalie comes walking upstairs from the family room and throws her arms around me. Since it is 7 pm, I ask (hopefully): Are you tired, Sweetie?

LMN (smiling): No, I just want my Mommy!

Me: OH! I LOVE THAT!

We hug and I ask her: I have to take your big brother somewhere pretty soon, do you want to drive along?

A moment’s hesitation is followed by her leaning back to look me in the eye… I spot a TWINKLE

in her eye as she says, “NO! I’m not old enough to drive yet, Mom!”

Guffaws all around!
