- 9 year old: I was thinking to either use a straightener on my hair or get some rollers in there.
- Me: Do you not know who your mother is? I don't have those things.
for some Rainbow Loom! Miss M (the newly christened 9 yr old) got one for her birthday. They are all the rage among the little folk. So tonight she decided she would teach her old mom how to make a simple bracelet and a fish-tailed one. She was an excellent teacher to the point that when she couldn’t remember how exactly to do a fish-tail one, she consulted the video encyclopedia of her generation, the You-Tuber.
I rocked that Rainbow Loom so hard it didn’t know what hit it.
"Mom, can C (4 yr old) stay down here with me for her quiet time?" the 8 yr old asks. "Sure but she has to stay with you and you two play nicely together." I respond. "We will."
5-10 minutes later…
"Mom, can C take her quiet time now? She is cranky."
Wherein I describe my girls love of their stuffed animals.
