“You don’t match, Mommy” I was informed by Annika. I glanced down at my outfit and thought I didn’t realize there was a rule that you had to match your four year old. “Why don’t I match?”, I asked.  “Well you don’t match our family.  All the kids and Daddy have blue eyes and you have green eyes.”  She then proceeded to list everyone in our family.  As she reached the end of the list, her face brightened.  “But you do match, Mommy!  You match Reesey!” (our cat)

Phew!  It was awfully good to know that I fit in with the rest of us! 😉

    Hilarious! Gotta love their logic at that age! Just today Eva was telling in all earnesty: “remember, Mom, when you were a baby and you had an owie tummy and you cried and I held you and your owie tummy went away?” I tried reasoning with her that she was the baby and I was the Mommy, but she became a little upset, saying ‘no! I remember when you were a baby!’ Free entertainment 🙂
