As usual, Mila was having a melt-down today, screaming because Sophia wanted to draw, and so wouldn't play Pirate Princess with her.
"I'll play pirate princess with you." I offer--- thinking for sure this will cheer her up instantly. I'm a popular play-mate around here lately... unfortunately. (I LOVE my kids... I don't really love to play pretend.)
"I don't want to play with YOU.... you do we-ewd boices (weird voices) when you play!!"
And all this time I thought I was scoring points for that. All the wasted efforts. They just really know how to put me in my place these days.
