On our walk this morning, Annie told me she had an idea for Sous’ next birthday present. Earnestly:
“Come here so she doesn’t hear!”
I bend down to the stroller to receive this secret. Lips against my ear:
“It’s a—what’s her favorite color?”
“I don’t know, she’s a… Um, red?”
“It’s a RED, CHEWY STICK!!”
Lest it sound too rosy around here, let the record show I just spent half an hour scrubbing human feces out of our carpet after Sous ate (another) one of Paul’s diapers.
And now, a shower.
