Wonder Woman--don't trust her
We often find ourselves long on kids and short on time/attention/energy on the weekends. So last Saturday I took the twins to the library while baby slept and Daddy showered. We got many Magic Treehouse books (Ninjas at Night!) and as we walked home the only way I could resuscitate flagging energy levels (we need a snack! Snack!!!) was to read aloud the back covers of all the books so we could pick which one to read first. As we crossed the pedestrian bridge to our house, an older couple walking in the other direction stopped and stared. The woman burst out laughing.
"Boy, are you lucky kids!" she said, "to have your mom walking and reading to you! She must love you!"
I smiled. Lilah looked from the woman to me, back to the woman, then back to me.
"Mommy!" she said, as if talking to a not-very-bright toddler. "Ummm, Mommy? Read!"
