Armadillo



Miss M. was scribbling on a piece of paper, looked up and said "I made an armadillo"!

Today, she's in the office with me - her daycare is closed for staff development. She is using the adding machine, spilling milk and making crumbs, running errands (I can give her a piece of paper and she'll walk it down the hall to my boss), drawing pictures with highlighters, and playing with my many rubber animals (why have I accumulated so many rubber animals in my office?). She interrupted me in a meeting with my boss, annoucing "I have to poop!". I headed him off at the pass with "I'm not going to wipe your ass". We've also been watching ballet on YouTube, watching kids in class, and visiting the costume shop downstairs. It's been a full day. I've gotten nearly nothing done, but I'm here - that counts for something, right?

Sounds like the kind of day we have when Z. comes to the store with me--but Z. does it with less flair, being 2, not 3. I think I will enjoy 3. Sigh.

Ahh, yes, I remember those days as well. You get lots of kudos for making the effort, you get smiles because of the cuteness that is your child, and you get nothing done. But, she gets to see you "work" and that is worth a lot.

The drawing is way cute. I wasn't quite sure if it was a six-banded armadillo, a naked-tailed armadillo, or perhaps a pink fairy armadillo. Maybe Miss M. could tell us.

I liked when they came to work with me, very very cool, especially now that they are old enough to wipe their own asses!

It definitely counts.
