Post 309: Lily


So much has happened, so much growth it is incredible. Here are a few conversations we have been having recently.

(In the car today after school)

Where is my painting?

what painting?

The painting I made today at school?

I don’t know, it must be at school?

I need it now, we have to get it.

I dont think we have time to get it, perhaps you can get it in the morning?

I need it right now.

(then, with a certifiably accurate dramatic pause…)

I am going to cry now.

(another pause)

Crying sounds start.

I have a owee, I need a bandaid.

I can get you a bandaid when we park the car

Crying disappears and the painting was never mentioned again.

This next conversation happens many mornings these days.

Lily: Is it today or tomorrow?

Dad or Mom: It is today

Lily: When will it be tomorrow?

Mom or Dad: After another sleep.

Lily: “Tooooooo longgggggggg”

It is all very Frog and Toad-esque, so why not take a look at this article in the Atlantic entitled Frog and Toad and the Self
