Heh. Scene from Monday:
Elayna: Mommy, wait for me to finish my homework so we can both write at the same time!
Me: *putters around the house*
Me: You ready yet?
Elayna: No, but you can go write.
Me: You won't bother me?
5 minutes and three sentences later...
Elayna: Mommy, I want dinner before I start writing; can you help me open this soup can?
Me: Elayna! Remember how you just said "go ahead and write"?
Elayna: ...oh yeah.
And dear gods, she's loud. She doesn't walk. She galumphs. Like the Jabberwock.
