Pensive Mae

August 12, 2012

Maybe I mentioned this before, but it seems Mae NEVER SHUTS UP! I took this photo about five minutes after she woke up this morning – the ONLY time she was quiet all day. I’m not kidding. It’s wearing. She’s like a walking wikipedia – she has an answer, or opinion/arugument, for everything. Clearly, she can’t be my child.

I spent most of my day with Mae. Alison needed a break – especially after spending 3 days with both girls camping. I decided to take Mae to the playground where she asked me to push her on the swing – that went on for over an hour! Then, we had to do the teeter-totter – then the slide… She talked my ear off the entire time. I couldn’t take it any longer, so I suggested a snack. Surely she’d keep quiet while munching on a cookie, right? Uh – no – she just kept talking right through snack time — then through dinner time – then after dinner — then through bath time – then when it was time to go to bed.

It’s now 9:30 at night – I can hear Mae in her room calling out to us — “I love you mommy and daddy!

Yes, it’s cute — but my ears need a rest…

Goodnight, Mae. I love you, too.
