GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS
No Boys Allowed weekend continues. Here are the highlights of our day without
10:15 am: Karate class.
Girls punched, kicked, and shouted phrases in Korean. I read Down
the Rabbit Hole.
11:30 am: Stopped at a store to pick up a gift for Little
Bit’s friend, who is turning five. Girls
bickered. I pretended they were someone
1:30 pm: Planted beans in garden. I demanded that Tigger untie Little Bit’s
arms and legs. Don’t ask.
2:45: Dentist. Girls
had teeth cleaned and polished. I read
more of Down the Rabbit Hole. Idiotic Dental Hygienist gave Tigger a bag
with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and three toys. Little Bit got a bag with a toothbrush,
toothpaste, floss, and no toys. When
Little Bit quite justifiably hollered, Idiotic Dental Hygienist admonished her
for whining, telling her to just ask next time.
I refrained (barely) from suggesting that Little Bit try out some of her
karate moves on Idiotic Dental Hygienist.
5:05 pm: Movie. I
paid a gazillion dollars for three tickets, two hotdogs, two packages of candy,
one medium bag ‘o popcorn, and three bottles of water. We all enjoyed Akeelah and the Bee. Miraculously,
neither child had to be taken to the bathroom during the movie.
8:45 pm: I hurriedly mopped the kitchen floor and then
returned to Little Bit’s room to see what she was yelling about. Seems I put her to bed without singing her a
song and rubbing her back. That’s
usually Daddy’s job.
9:26 pm: Tigger had
BETTER be in bed in four minutes.
