My little Emmie was poking me in a place I did not appreciate being poked. I asked her to stop but instead she giggled and did it again. I wanted to tell her that if she did not stop I would break her finger. How could I say that to a little princess who kisses me on the cheek and tells me that she loves me and I am her favorite mommy? She trusts me to take care of her and to protect her. So instead I said "If you do it one more time I am going to break your... TOYS!" She looked shocked - then her eyes filled with tears and she began to pout. Uhh. That is not what I expected at all. So I said, "Okay I will not break your toys but I will break your finger?". She looked up , smiled and then started to laugh. I just do not get it! She is getting ready to start preschool and she said that she can not go. I asked her why and she threw her arms in the air and said " Because I do not know anything!" She makes me smile.
They all go back to school this week and I am very curious what I am going to do with those 4 hours that I will have to myself for the first time in many years. I am almost nervous about it. But I know I will get used to it and most likely enjoy it.
