Usually when the girls are down for their naps, I'm downstairs cleaning, folding laundry, or getting my Fancy work done. Sometimes the house is quiet and still, other times it sounds as though there were a bowling alley upstairs no one told me about. Brynn must think I think she's sleeping up there, but instead, I'm downstairs wondering how only 36 lbs. of sugar and spice can register at least a 5.0 on the Richter scale. Eventually, all is silent upstairs, and it is only when Brynn wakes from her slumber that I find out just what she was up to before she went to sleep:
Apparently Bunny likes a bedtime story and prefers to sleep under the covers.
One of these things is not like the others...
Brynn later told me she was pretending to be a teacher and the motley crew pictured above was her class. I asked her if she wants to be a teacher when she grows up, and she said, "I want to be a mommy when I grow up because I'm a good mommy to my animals." Unlike when she told me using half a roll of toilet paper to wipe her teeny tiny bum eliminates the need for handwashing, I couldn't argue with her.
