Overheard, and discovered in the nick of time...


This evening, I was out of the kitchen for LITERALLY two seconds (that's about how long it takes for the average mother to use the washroom, am I right?!), but came RACING back in when I heard:

Child Number Three: (softly singing) Heeeeeere, fishy-fishy!!

I discovered her, standing at the kitchen counter on a pushed-up chair, about to drop A SPOONFUL OF HER CHOCOLATE PUDDING into the fishbowl.

Mother: (grabbing Wee Three just in time to save Ruby the Betta) New Rule, everybody!! Sharing is GOOD, just NOT snacks with fish. Got it??!!

Child Number Three: (smiling sweetly) Nope!!

Hmm ... Looking back over previous entries, it would seem that Child Number Three seems to have a predilection for the words "no" and "nope", offered with a sweet smile ...

I carry in my memory an image of her mother as a young woman offering similar sentiments with a beautiful sweet smile and sparkling eyes ...

Could it be the apple fell straight down out of the tree??

lol !!!!

Now THAT's where she is a MUCH BIGGER PERSON than I am, for sure... I share my chocolate with NO ONE, fins or no fins...
