On Sunday night at dinner, Jadyn wanted to know if she could have some of the croutons from my salad. She said, "Mom, can I have your raccoons?" LOL! I'll miss these times, when she is older.
Yesterday morning, Jadyn found a roly poly bug in the house and she put it in an empty plastic cinnamon bottle. She was so happy with him, saying how cute he was, and how fun he was to pet. She wanted me to pet him too, but I declined.
I went to take my shower, and when I returned I noticed the open jar, lying on the couch. I asked her where the roly poly was. She said, "He's on the coaster." I asked her to repeat that, because I was wondering how on earth she expected him to stay put there. I took a look, and sure enough he was on the coaster, on his back with his little legs in the air. Dead.
I said, "Honey, I think he's dead." She asked me how I knew. ☻ I said, "Umm, well I don't think he's asleep."
A little bit later, she said, "If you pet a roly poly too much and shake it too much, it will die."
Alan said maybe it was cinnamoned to death. Ha.
Last night, I was doing the dishes and my back was to the area in our living room. We have a couple of rocker-recliners in there. I heard a little boom. I turned around, and one of the chairs had fallen over on it's back! Jadyn was there and she said, "Hey, how'd that chair fall down?" I said I thought she did it and she said she didn't. I told her she needed to tell me the truth. She admitted that she sat on the back of it and it fell over. Dear heavens, I'm glad she wasn't hurt.
Alan and Bryan came in, after they heard all of the commotion. I tried to tell them what happened, but could not stifle my laughter. (I occasionally have inappropriate laughter syndrome.) The whole situation and "Hey, how'd that chair fall down?" was just so comical to me. Jadyn started crying because I laughed about it. She's going to be warped now, I'm sure of it.
I said, "I'm pretty sure she's our only child who has ever made one of those chairs fall down." Bryan said, "Uh mom, I'm pretty sure she's not the only one. I mastered everything in the house as a child." Oh.my.goodness. Sometimes he scares me.
