Avery came running into my room, just moments ago… grinning from ear to ear, jumping up and down with excitement, super-dee-duper (yes, I’ve watched Barney a time or two) proud of herself.
“Momma! Guess what?!?!?”
“What, Ave???” (thinking she must’ve found a cure for the common cold or something)
“I just wiped my butt… all my myself!!! with wipies!! and LOOK, Momma… I didn’t even get my hands dirty!”
Momma just looks at Avery, speechless… I mean, really, what IS the proper response to that??
Avery clearly wants praise… she says (still grinning and bouncing up and down):
“Isn’t it AMAZING, Mommy???”
Yes, Avery… amazing… that’s one word for it.
And THIS is what my life has become. I don’t know if I should laugh or cry.
