One on one times with Diva prove to be the funniest times. Lil' Sis napped for a long time today so Diva and I read stories, watched a bit of Lion King, played outside and then just "talked."
So here's a nugget of our afternoon:
Me: Honey, you need to button your shirt. See look...it's not buttoned. *reach forward to button it*
Diva: NO! I wanna show my boobies.
I'm lying on the couch and I pretend to suck my thumb. Diva is a thumb sucker but only if she has her blanket. It's kind of odd. She seriously never sucks her thumb without her blanket. Anyway so I'm kind of making fun of her and pretending that I'm sleeping. She says, "Let me cover you." She gives me her blanket and I'm all set to "sleep."
She then starts coaching me on how to caress the blanket. Apparently it has to be done in a very precise manner. I scrunch it and it's incorrect. I pat it, a no go.
"Like this mommy!" she stands over me while she demonstrates. She takes my left- hand thumb out of my mouth, replaces it with my right- hand thumb and shows me out to "knead" the blanket.
Got it. I'm such a novice.
