I Think Someone is Drinking my Tea


I just sat down for a minute to check my email. I could hear the girls in the other room, doing those things that sisters do-- sing, dance, play, fight over books. I briefly saw them for a few minutes because they both decided they had to go potty at the same time (my bathroom is straight across from the room where the computer is).

So when I heard the clinking of the spoon, that is when it dawned on me....oh,yeah, my cup of tea. Well, by the time I get back in there, I am more than sure that there will not be much tea left in the cup. Well, at least they are quiet. They are watching one of Dancer Girl's favorites, The Parent Trap (she likes both, but her current favorite is the new version). She is always holding up a DVD, say something like My Big Fat Greek Wedding(another one of her favorites), and I hear her saying, "Sister, don't you want to watch this? You do? ok, I'll put it in." The whole time we all know the Little Sister really wants to watch the Wiggles. Little Sister is 2.5 and can be encouraged to say anything. I am trying to teach Dancer Girl about leading questions, and encouraging her not to take advantage of her sister.

So anyway, I am sure my tea is gone. Clink, clink, clink, slurp, slurp, slurp, I hear.

As Motherkitty always says, "Mom's tea is the best."

ha. Just like my boys. They take turns picking the movie they'll watch before bed each night. On Nick's night you'll hear Drew saying "you want to watch Toy Story, don't you? You know you do...".

And they have to drink MY water. Water not in my glass just isn't the same!

Sounds like all is well in your little nest.
One time my friends little boys were playing in the bathroom and came out with maxi pads taped all over them.She said that was the best $3.50 she ever spent because they played sticking little pillows on each other for hours.
I loved that she let them play.And probably hid the next pack.:)

Very true. Except, of course, I always drank the dregs of Dad's tea beacuse it's be all sugary and it wouldn't scald my tongue. (Dad drinks boiling hot water tea.)
