Last night, we sat down to watch an episode of Star Wars Rebels. As the show was starting, Annie insisted that we pause the show. She ran off and came back with a light saber. Then we could continue the show.
Today, Alissa was supposed to go to a Ladie’s Tea at church. Annie and both grandma’s were coming too. Well, Alissa has been sick all week, so Annie “took” both her grandmas to our church.
This evening, she put on her swimsuit and announced that she was going on a date to the beach. She kept this narrative up for a while and gave us numerous instructions pertaining to the arrival of her unnamed date, all the while calling us “Mom” and “Dad’ as opposed to “Mommy” and “Daddy”.
Something about that experience was … unnerving.
